Quite a while ago I‘d bought a goody bag from the Craftwork Cards stall at Harrogate, it must have been two years ago and I still have some bits of it left. The bag was a pink, cream and gold theme, so when Hanni (my daughter) asked if I could make a card for her I went straight to this. The card blank, envelope, baking paper, embossed frame, candies and the sentiment are all from the goody bag. I used Distress Ink – Old Paper to highlight the embossed flowers on the frame, also around the edges on the centre square and I used it to colour the coat of the lady. The centre stamp is from the ‘Fabulously Feminine’ stamp set from Dimension Fourth ref: 2400030a. I stamped her in VersaMark and then embossed using detail gold embossing powder. I used a gold Sakura Metallic Gelly Roll pen for the little dots on the frame, as well as for the middle flower. Using a gold flower brad I layered the flower pieces together with the sentiment in the middle, the sentiment is in fact shaped like a handbag so the brad went through the handle. I finished the card off by placing the candies in the other three corners.

As I was making this month's main card I kept thinking of loads of bits and pieces I wanted to do, so the following card is actually a cut down version of my thoughts. The card just happened as I went along, but like I said on the newsletter you can do as much or as little as you like, its up to you. J
this piece of card the same way as for the base card. Using double sided tape matt and layer all pieces together. For the sentiment I used VersaFine black and embossed with detail clear embossing powder, inked the edge of the circle with pink and again embossed. Before attaching the sentiment with foam pads I used a VersaMarker pen and clear embossing powder around the scalloped edged circle.
