Peace, Prosperity and Joy

You know when you make a card, and you set it aside to photograph.. then you photograph it.. and lay it aside again.. and then when the time comes where you actually want it.. you can never find it?!

Oh great - so it only ever happens to me then?! YOU ALL FIB!!

THAT is EXACTLY what happened with this card.. and I'm pretty sad about it.. because I love it so. Hopefully it'll turn up soon.. before Christmas.. so I can actually use it.

Too pretty, I love the duck egg blue and the vibrant red together. There's something I always find appealing about the mixing up of the 'traditional' Christmas colours. Don't get me wrong, I love reds and greens and golds, but once in a while it's nice to change things up a little.

.. so that's exactly what I done with this card. I started off with the red and silver, but thought it might be different to add some duck egg in the form of some seam binding, satin ribbon and little glittery stars.



  1. Gorgeous card Lou, love the design and fab embossing.
