Anyone for Strawberries...or Cupcakes?

For some reason, God knows why, I have been itching to make a small card. I've finally managed it and this card measures 9.5 x 9.5 cms (or for those that work in inches - 3.75 x 3.75 inches). I have used Dawny's fab sketch number 6 from Papertake this week (and I have just realised that I have missed off the sentiment... hope this doesn't count against me!). The stamp is from forever friends and I have coloured it with distress inks.
As the card was small, I had to make an envelope to go with it and I have used my paisley embossing folder to add some detail to the flap.
Card/Paper: Red and pearly white card, paper received in some candy from Sally
Stamp: Forever friends
Colouring: Ranger distress inks - fired brick, tattered rose and weathered wood
Embossing: Paisley folder
Embellishments: Jewels, charm and ribbon
Tools: Cuttlebug, water brush, scalloped squares die
Thanks for looking. x

    As a side issue, I am currently looking for a creative designer to do some makes for me. I am a designer of digital scrapbooking papers and need an individual to make cards or layouts showcasing my bold, colourful and contemporary papers.

    In return you would showcase your talents and be able to download my papers and use those for the projects.

    If you are interested, please take a look at my blog and see what you think!



Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message, they are all really appreciated.
