Have a Tweet Day !

Today's card has been made for the latest challenge over on the MSE board. So back to my favourite lilac again and this time with a hint of pink. I wanted to try out something I've seen on one or two blogs in the past, most notably Mandy's - A Sprinkling of Glitter - so used my Martha Stewart PATP set to make a pretty shaped card front and then decorated away! I also got to use one of my new Spellbinders dies from the recent C&C Multibuy Six Set offer. Can you believe I've had them about 10 days and only just cracked the first set open.

and a sideways view:

  9. Hi Louise

    Your card is gorgeous.

    A beautiful colour and I love the punched edge and the nestie work.

    I don't think I could have kept my purchases un-opened for that length of time. I would have to open then and stroke them .. .. even if I didn't use them straight away LOL!!!

    Love Jules xx
