Petal Pairs and Martha Stewart

Hello Everyone
Thank you for visiting 
Thank you Mynn for dropping in and your very kind words. I enjoyed taking part and I will certainly be using bokah style backgrounds again (for newbies see yesterday's post)

I hope you all had an enjoyable Bank Holiday week end. It was lovely to have husband at home for a change. We went to a friend's 60th Birthday party, on the Friday, which was great. She had a live act called "Soul Man" and played all of our favourite music, Soul, Barry White, The Drifters to name but a couple AND loads of Motown.
On Sunday afternoon we went Salsa dancing
Monday, it was clear out the fancy dress cupboard - watch this space for photos later in the year.

Janice Wallace the serif kit you asked about is a free kit called "Envelopes 2013" See below for another great image from the kit.

So today's card 

5x7 card blank
Martha Stewart punch around the page
Petal Pairs Flower pucnch
Tonic Ivy Die
Spellbinders D-Lite medallion die to make rosette
Britannia Happy Birthday die
Pale and dark green card probably from Llidl and a botched piece of patterned card (I managed to superimposed a small photo over the top of a piece of patterned paper - don't know how!)
I made a matching tent style envelope too!

This is the other image I loved on the free serif digikit "Envelopes 2013" I "cut" into it to seperate the pieces and re colour and to print separately to decoupage. I added a punch of a pair of glasses in dark brown and a Sue Wilson 3D bow in two shades of red

  2. Karen thank you for your comment on the evening invites. Gillian has the heart striplet on hers and that is lovely too. But Alice just loved the regal one. I will post the day one soon. Love your card, always think you don't have to have much on a card to get a Wow factor. Just love the simple flower but very effect with that back ground. Hazel x
