Thinking of You

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all this morning?

Today I am going to be doing my first live tutorial on Ustream for Gone Artsy at 2.00 pm

Today's card is made using an image from one of Joanna Sheen's old CD's.



Step by Step

1. Easel card turned on its side which I have matted and layered burgundy patterned card on the inside and front panel.
2. I printed off the image and matted and layered pale pink pearlescent card, wrapped white lace around the bottom.
3. The corner is Tattered Lace Cherished Heart Corner which has been trimmed, I then added 3 small roses and added glossy accents to the roses.
4. To finish off I added the metal butterfly.
