The days have flown again, son been on holiday again and couldn't get to my computer. Plus my gorgeous little treasure was here all weekend again. She's counting down my medicine and wanted to know if it was strawberry like hers said no, but wished it was. Never mind Nanna she said you've only one more. She's  a sunny bundle of love, can't believe it she will be starting school in September. Time really does fly
For my card this week I used Alcohol inks and distress inks . The stamps are another of my favourites by Chocolate Barque,I inked and embossed the edge with Wow gold embossing powder. Added a few pearls to finish, I've made for a friends birthday. Sorry about the funny picture had to stand it on my bed to get a better  light.
Off to catch up with a few blogs, happy crafting have fun. Love and hugs x ChrisB

  4. This is a wonderful card Chris and very elegant. Love that die shape for the stamped birdcage. Whose is it please 'cos I've not seen that shape before. The gold embossing is fab and gives such a luxurious effect.
