French perfume

Hello everybody. Can you believe it is February already? It seems only yesterday we were all wishing each other Happy Christmas. Yikes!!! Where does the time go? Thanks for visiting me today.  I also want to say hello to my new followers. Great to have you and if you leave a comment I can return the favour and visit you too. I do love this little crafting community we have. Everybody in Blogland is so kind and helpful.

My Card

My card today is quite a girlie card with flowers, ribbon, lace and perfume. I'm afraid I don't know the name of the stamp - it was one of those I removed from the wooden block and forgot to take down the details, silly me! I die cut it with Spellbinders Labels 8 and Decorative Labels 8. The backing papers are HOTP from the Soft Florals and Patterns scrapbooking paper pad. They are so pretty that I didn't want to cover them up too much so, unusually for me, I decided to go with an 8x8 card for a change. I ended up covering most of the ribbon except for the bow but that's okay - I know it's there! The sentiment is Craftwork Cards Circle Sentiments. I cut up a pearl flourish from Want2Scrap and added it as you see. The pretty lace was given to me by Linda from Creative Harmony. The  papers actually look quite washed out in the picture when in reality that's not the case. I guess the overhead lighting must leach out the colour, but by the time I was ready to take a picture it was getting dark.

Well that's it for today. Have a good day everybody.

Love and hugs from Christine xx

Hi Christine,
Another of your elegant, classy cards. Beautifully laid out and the colours you have chosen are delightful. I know it may sound strange but cards can sometimes remind me of people and to me you card reminds me of my aunty Joan. She only recerntly passed away but she was the most gentle, generous and caring person. She loved spring and flowers and you could often find flowers, lace and pastels adorning her home furnishings. A true class your card.
Biggest hugs Linda xx
