Materials

So for this little gem of a card I have used the very funky Kraftin Kimmie image which I got from Tracy at Dies to Die For. The papers are some of my absolute faves by Making Memories and I have these in several colours, they are just so gorgeous. Flowers are a mix from Poppicrafts and Crafty Feeling and the lovely gem brads are by Papermania (I think). Another fab craftwork cards sentiment (you can buy some HERE and they are so handy to have in your stash, lord only knows how I managed without them. They fit beautifully in my fancy tags by Spellbinders. The lush ribbon is a real steal from the Paper Mill Shop at only £2.99 for 12 metres and comes in loads of colours in both satin and organza. Oooh, almost forgot my Martha Stewart Border Punch .... eek. Little sparkly gems from Papermanis to finish and thats it, another card finished. Please pop back tomorrow because I have a really gorgeous image to show you .... have a fab day xxx
