Good afternoon, slow progress on the decorating bedroom situation, hubby keeps saying you cant rush it ...grrrr. sick of dust from sanding celling and walls, already gone through one pot of filler for all the dings & dents in wall. So to get away from it all I hid in my craft room. while he sanded filled & sanded some more.
I pulled out my Lili of the valley - dandelion clock stamp & prima papers
I am really pleased how this card turned out. Usually I think the cards I make are just ok & every one Else's are so much better. But this card I really like.
Got a little stuck at one point & it was close to going in the bin.
Had gap above image that nothing I put in place worked.
So left it over night & came back to it & added the banner at top & the butterfly.
