Special friend

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you are having a lovely day whatever you are doing.

I am still at home and unfortunately, apart from posting this, today will mostly be doing uni work :-(

This card is one I made as a request from a friend. She wanted something girly with shoes, dresses and handbags on!

I created the background by using square nestie dies and cutting out 4 scraps of paper using snippets from my stash of left over card. I placed these on top of a piece of pink card stock and arranged them so the pieces were opposite. I thought this added a bit of dimension to the background rather than having one type of paper as the background as the rest of the card is slightly simple.


- 6x6 craftwork cards scalloped edge cardstock
- teahouse papers
- image from wrapping paper
- scalloped edge and circle nestie dies
- gems and ribbon from stash

I would like to enter this card into Di's Snippets challenge.

Hope you are all having a lovely day and you are enjoying the bank holiday weekend!

Absolutely great Laura - pink too :) Love the way you used four pieces of background paper and the end result is lovely!

Don't work too hard, a little bit of playtime too!

Just had another peek - love the way the deep reddish pink ribbon and gems pick up the colours in the 'dresses' - brilliant!
