Good Morning Crafty Friends, Family and Visitors

Pinch and a punch the first day of the month!
Happy St David's day to all my welsh friends.

So excited today as I have added 2 new sets of designer papers and ephemera to my Etsy shop Emerald City Crafts UK 

They are called Nostalgia and Madamoiselle, Nostalgia has a very Vintage feel whilst Madamoiselle is more Art Deco and I hope you like them. You can purchase either digi downloads or the pre-printed paper packs.

Today my card is made using the Nostalgia papers and ephemera.

Step by Step

1. 8 x 8 white square card
2. Matted and layered brown pearlescent card and harlequin paper which has been distressed with scissors and DI vintage photo.
3. Matted and layered brown pearlescent card and fleur de lis paper also distressed with scissors and DI vintage photo.
4. The ephemera has been adhered to base card with foam pads for dimension.
5. To finish off added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and added the words from Tim Holtz Chit Chat "Making Memories.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Unstampabelles #65 - Anything Goes
Glitter n Sparkle #228 - Anything Goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #52 - Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenges #2 - Anything Goes
Allsorts #404 - Metal and/or charms

Many thanks for visiting today
Happy Crafting!
