Another one that sold

Hello lovely bloggers,

I sure have been having a busy week... sold 62 cards so far considering it was a bit slow because I did not take up a table in school. Am planning to take up a stall in one of the Christmas bazaars in town. So I better get moving since I don't have many cards ready.

Here is a card that sold off a few weeks ago but I did not post the picture because I thought it was rather simple... 

Base card - off white
Stamp - Hero Arts (I think) touched up with my Sakura gold metallic pen
Distress around the sides - Tim Holtz rusty hinge
Dull gold embossed paper for layering at the bottom - fancy gift wrap
Corners -  from a wall paper sample

Am going to enter this for the following challenges: - anything goes - fall - fall, autumn - vintage, distressed - something that sparkles

I will surely come and visit your blogs soon.

Well done! with your card sales, Monica.

There's nothing 'simple' about your card. It looks gorgeous with the flittering of gold. Love the fern leaf. Your card would be perfect for any occasion:)

Helen said...

I love what you did with the fern. So rich!

Monica it is a lovely card, very elegant and can be used for any occasion. You certainly have been busy, and I guess will be so for the next few weeks at least. Good luck with the card sales.
