Its been a mad hectic crazy week with loads going on so I am sorry If I have not been around much, I will do my best to catch up.
I realise this is not the most exciting card, but I thought I would share it with you as I am quite proud of this one.....why?
Well I was watching craft on the TV last week and saw this most gorgeous kit that I really really wanted it, It was a gorgeous pink and black set, so elegant some of the papers had chandeliers, some crowns, and I just loved it!! However as I have just organised my crafting space and reminded myself of just how much stuff I had, at the mo I just feel to guilty to buy more ( I know this will not last long) and so I resisted.......this is the first reason for being pleased with myself.
The second is I have managed to create a similar look using the "My Craft Studio" programme. I have a couple of thier cd's but I do not use it as much as I should I normally just use it for resizing digi stamps. I have taken an image from the "simply silhouettes" cd and have manipulated it and changed the colour e.c.t....to create my own paper and topper.....so I have got the look I fell in love with by using the tools and products I already own.
I have kept the card simple, and just added a little bling.
