Pretty as a Picture

I've not had a lot of time for crafting recently since being on holiday and returning, but this is a card I made for a friends birthday. The background paper is Melissa Frances fifth avenue and is a recent discovery. I bought it from Dunelm Mills of all places as they now have a craft section there. The image and frame are from crafty Individuals and the heart is a one I made using a sizzix die which was covered in the melissa frances paper. The other die cuts are from memory box and cheery lynn.

Its good to be back at my craft desk but I'm certainly missing those pain au chocolats for breakfast. Apologises for the photo but on going camera problems so using my iphone to take pics but I do rather like the border effects LOL!

Thanks for all your kind words, I really appreciate you taking the time and trouble to leave a comment and its lovely to visit all your blogs too.

Happy Crafting XX

This is getting to be too scary.
Papers used on my recent post (notebook) is that exact sheet of paper. I also bought from Dunelm Mills.
To take it a step further. That CI frame, I have it lying on out drying as it is a work in progress with paints.
Were we separated at birth ROFL.
A beautiful piece of art. A real sense of fragile beauty to it. The pretty edging frames it so beautifully.

Beautiful card Paula, your Dunelm Mill stocks better paper than ours which has a selection of cupcake themed papers and 6x6 metallic card blanks!
