CCAYR mid-month post


This is one of my cards that has been posted today here for the mid-month inspiration for the Christmas cards all year round August challenge: fussy and fancy. If you haven't yet had a chance to join in, please click on the link and do so. And please have a look at the wonderful inspiration given by the crafting of the rest of the team.

I used a card blank with a ready cut fancy edge which I brushed with bundled sage distress ink, linking the inside of the card with coordinating paper. All papers are from a Hunkydory kit. Gems are from Hobbycraft and Poundland. The centre piece background with the bell is very glittered, which, unfortunately, doesn't show up too well here.

This is for Kirsy Anne's sketch for The sketchy challnge 53:

All papers are scraps from my Christmas offcuts box and the pyramage pictue is from an old Kanban kit - I've made a few cards using some of these - it's about time they were used.
