Got some cards to show you today. The first two are made with a stamp I picked up out of Crafty Patch craft shop in Chorley. A great bargain as it was half price, I think it's a lovely frame. On the first card I stamped and and embossed the frame onto Crafters companion  white centura pearl card. I used Brass Wow powder. The backing paper is from a Paper Cellar Pad called Victorian classic I embossed around the edge.  I added a strip of Lace and ove rwrapped with ribbon, made three paper flowers from the same backing paper added pink pearl to match the pink shading on the paper. Glittered the flowers and the image. Added a bow and Pearl pins.

The second card uses the same frame and embossing powder, then onto the inner part of the frame I stamped using a little stamp belonging to one of Sheena Douglas flower stamp sets Beauty is also from one of the sets. The backing paper is from a Making Cards magazine which I overstamp. Coloured my stamped image with promarkers and added pearl and a bit of glitter. Cut out two little butterflies from some acetate I have had years, added glitter on the back and a bow and ribbon at the bottom.

The last card I quickly made yesterday from Crafters Companion Angelica and friends cd. I used a card companion a ribbon border, rosette which I cut to look more like a flower a bow. I cut two Spellbinders fancy label tags and mounted them behind my image and added glitter.
Sorry my photos are not very good. I am still full of a cough and it's on my  chest so been coughing most of the night. Hope you are all keeping well and having fun crafting. Thanks for visiting, I appreciate all your lovely comments. Take care Hugs x ChrisB
