Today's post is a little later than usual as
a) I deleted the post after typing it all last night!
b) I've been at our Sheffield store today, doing one of my workshops (great day!!)
So, I wanted to show you this card, it was one of my demos on HOCHANDA, but a most unusual colour scheme for me and, I have to say, I absolutely love it!
I'm not a fan of greens, in the main (unless it's my Decadent Bamboo, Frosty Jade or Chic Moss!), so working with a darker green takes me a little out of my comfort zone,..but, I have to say, this Brunswick Green looks gorgeous with the soft tones of the Milk Foundation Card, even the snowflakes!
The gold embossing detail adds a little touch of luxury to this card, especially as I used my new snowflakes stamps and the whole colour scheme looks really rather classy (in my humble opinion ha ha)(I hope you agree!)
One of my absolute 'must have' sets of stamps, from any of my collections now, are the sentiment borders,.. I simply can't not have them now,.. So versatile, create beautiful banners, stamp around the card to create a frame, mask off and use certain parts,.. love them!
On this card, I created a banner (one of my fave ways to use them)
So, here's what I used (as always, with links to the products on my www should you 'need' to treat yourself)
