chocolate and swirls




Paper from Kaisercraft "Elegance ,Eleanor"
Stamp sentiment from Kaisercraft "C5929 Life "

The Lollipop Ladies challenge 32 - inspired by chocolate spiders plus threads .A difficult colour scheme to work with but I got there in the end .My thread runs through the tape in the centre.The flower is hand cut from the reverse side of the paper.

Papercraft Star challenge 69 - A flourish - I love these pearly strips ,all spaced out and ready to go.

Gail! What a cute card I love the little faux stitching around the petals of the flower. That is so creative, and the flourishes are perfect with the patterned paper! Thank you for sharing this with us over at the Papercraft Star!

What a lovely layout and that flower is so pretty. So glad you came to visit over my way as I had been a little worried not seeing a post from you. Forgot about your holiday, glad to hear you had a great time. Also good to hear that the move has happened successfully. Now you will need another quick holiday to recover. :-) take care.
