You and I

I have an essay due tomorrow, so rather than write it I figured I would make a card! Inspiration generally comes flowing when you have other far more important stuff that needs to be done. It worked like a dream! This card took no time at all to make and I am quite pleased how it turned out.

The papers are from Papermania. When I was on holiday I was set on not purchasing anymore paper as I really do not need anymore of it. That plan lasted until I spotted this gorgeous paper pad! The adorable pre-coloured image is from The Hobby House. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts along with the lilac ribbon and bow. The lace is from a local, the sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley. I reckon the doily might also be Papermania, while the cute little buttons on the side are card candy from Craftwork Cards. The leaves are made using a Martha Stewart puncher.

  1. I so know what you mean! I keep telling myself that I shouldn’t buy more flowers or papers etc., but then I see something that I really *must* have. I’m a hopeless case. *sigh*
    I think your decision to buy this paper pad was right, because the papers really are fab and so is your card. Thank you for playing with us at Crafty ribbons! Hugs! xx
