One of Those Cards....

when everything that could go wrong DID go wrong.  I won't bore you with all the details but suffice to say one of the things on my crafty wishlist is a new cutter.  Anyway, I got there in the end but with a few choice words along the way!  Gems and glitter added for sparkle.

I've added a little pocket and tag to write the greeting on. I can't remember on whose blog I first saw this idea (sometime last year) and have been meaning to try it out. I used a Labels Eight Nestie to make the tag.

DPs - Floral - Kate Knight - magazine freebie;   Glitter - Papermania Henbury Lane
White card, Ribbon & Gems from Stash
Blue card - Core'dinations Whitewash
Image - Dandelion Clock by Lili of the Valley - stamped with Memento and coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - Dreamy Days by Lili of the Valley
Tools used:  Nestabilities Plain and Scalloped Circle and Labels Eight
Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch
X Cut Butterfly Punch

Thanks for looking.
