Swirls, Spots & Stripes

Hello All,

Another simple card from me today. As I mentioned previously I have been looking into selling some cards. My hairdressers have agreed to take a box of cards and a friend of mine is going to take a box into her work .... so now I am trying to mass produce cards. I have been advised by many of you to keep it simple ....... however now that I have got into a " Less is more" frame of mind, all my cards are turning out that way, and this one is a perfect example of that.

I have dug out an older SN stamp, this image is a fabulous Diana Duda one. I just adore her. I have coloured her with copics (which I did on my weekend away) All the swirls and flowers have been made with dies and punches, and I have used papers from my scrap pile..... and finally I have added a little glitter to her wings.

This is my entry for:

A Spoonfull Of Sugar - Anything Goes
City Crafter - Stripes and Polka dots
Dutch Dare - Winged things
OSAAT - Anything Goes

As always thanks for looking,
Hugs Juls


  1. Lovely card Juls

    Hugs sarah

  4. Gorgeous, I love the simplicity of it and the gorgeous mix of colours. Your cards will sell like crazy I am sure.

  5. Good for you Juls getting the selling under way - onwards and upwards!! I love this card - love the image, this is one of my FAVOURITE colour combos and your floral/swirl is fab! Hope you're feeling better (physically at least). bx

  6. Really hope it goes well for you, I'm sure once people see the quality they will be back for more :) . This card is gorgeous I love pink and green and the swirl and flowers just set if off.

  7. This is fabulous Juls!
    Congratulations on having an outlet for selling your cards. I know they will sell like hot cakes. Everyone who buys one will be buying a unique piece of artwork from a very talented lady.
    In my opinion you should be designing cards for one of the big greeting card companies and they would be lucky to have you with your unique and original style.
    Hugs, Clare x
