2nd post - challenge entry!

Afternoon all,

Couldn't resist having a go at the Simply Less Is More challenge #54 of STRIPES today - I may yet have another go as I am expecting a delivery and (if my memory serves me right) there is a stripey image in the collection - YAY! Anyway, hubby's just nipped out for an hour thus leaving me free to craft so I believe I may have spent my time wisely - see what you think! If you missed my earlier post then, if you've time, either scroll down or click here



Materials used:
  • White linen effect DL card and matching envelope
  • Hero Arts striped background image inked in Memento angel pink
  • Penny Black Flower image and sentiment (from same set) inked in Memento grape jelly
  • Crystal stickles to highlight

And here's a close up so you can see the stickles a little better!



Hope you are all enjoying a craft-y Saturday!
