Challenge then charity


Hi bloggers,

I made this card and a dozen more for a lady who stays in our complex who was kind enough to want to buy them...

It is a bit like the last card I posted... but I really like the colours here. 

As you can see my Cuttlebug is really coming in handy. The wine coloured circles have been die cut from handmade card stock. Pity  that this card looks much better in real life. 

Am going to enter this for the following challenges:

Love,

Monica

Hello Monica. Your card is beautiful my friend. I love the embossing, such fun isnt it, transforming a plain piece of card, into a beautiful background. The colours you have used are just wonderful and warming. How nice that a lady wants you to make some for her, great for you, well done. Happy crafting.
With love, Sandra xx
