Card with Leigh's delightful goodies

Hiya everybody, hope you had a good weekend... I did and am so happy about that. I saw a film called,  Prada to Nada...  For those of you that haven't seen it, it has been adapted from Jane Austen's novel (sorry, forget the name). The film seems to be a low budget one but the story is really grasping and the main female characters is just so likable as is the  lead male actor. 

Besides watching the film, I made this card with Leigh's (Charity Crafter) lovely candy that she sent me via snail mail a while ago... wonder how it reaches me in Indonesia everytime... 

Do go and check out her awesome blog in case you dunno who she is  - full of love and great deeds that she does beside making the most wonderful cards.

Don't you love these papers?

 I stuck my FAMOUS handmade roses that I make from a Sizzix mini diecut. One day I will share the tutorial for sure... 

The sentiment is handwritten with a gold pen and the little gold dots on the brown strip are done with the same gold pen.
I wanted to punch some sprigs and stick them with the flowers but my design consultant asked me not to! 

BTW, I am sure you know who that is - Zeenya!

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges: - favourites (which are my flowers and the colour combo) - weekly Monday linky party

These are the lovely papers that lovely Leigh sent for the girls and me - a great assortment.

This is a close up of the embellies Leigh sent for Zeenya and Aleeza. They were overboard with joy! But you know who will use them, right??? Me, me, me!

Have a happy and healthy week.

Terrific card... funny I have one of those design consultants too. I do value her opinion as she often suggests things that finish my cards nicely. Have fun with all your goodies.

Monica, what a gorgeous card you have made. I love the roses. I make a few different styles of flowers but haven't tried anything like this. Thanks for becoming a follower. I've done the same with your blog and also put a link on mine so I shall see when you post new things. I will try to keep in touch as much as I can. I'm feeling very sorry for myself today as I had oral surgery yesterday to remove an infection from a front tooth root canal. I either look like I have been in a boxing match with Mike Tyson or botox has gone wrong. Thank goodness I am not back to work until Monday. Hope I might feel up to a little crafting later in the week. Best wishes from one charity crafter to another, Kym xxx
