Thank you!

These are some cards I made for some very special ladies! Not my usual style as I really don't do cute, but I felt that some how these fitted the bill!

I made seven in total! My tape pen ran out, then my double sided tape and finally my trusty gold krylon pen  gave up the ghost!

I made a standard 6 x 6 easel card and matted with various papers from my stash. I used the new cheery Lynn dies, Dainty Dutch deco, Celtic Fire Rectangle, and exotic butterflies, which are beautiful and detailed. My first time of using digi images, these are from Sugar nellie and are coloured in with pro markers and distress inks. Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I attached a small pair of sterling silver pearl earrings I made as a gift!

I am entering these in the following challenges

Hope you have all had a fab weekend. It has been a gorgeous sunny day, perhaps we will get a summer after all.

Happy Crafting  & a big thank you for all your lovely comments,  they are all very much appreciated. X

These are beautiful and elegant, as well as gorgeous vintage. I would never call them "cute". Your artwork is excellent. I love your cards.

These are lovely and still have that romantic, vintage air about them. You definitely can do cute but on your terms. Great

They may not be your usual style but this shows your versatility that you can tackle any style. I can just tell how beautifully made they are and the attention to detail is wonderful.
No doubt about it, you can do cute :)
