Another request


Here we are end of the first week of February already!! Never mind Valentines, the shops are full of Easter already!! What is with that? Mind you, I don't mind too much as I'm a bit partial to the odd hot cross bun and secretly wish they would sell them all year long.

I have been busy this week, with a request for some cards from a lady I work with. She was after some cards without any sentiment so that they could be used for any occassion.

It's funny really, maybe it's just me, but I always struggle with where to put the sentiment on a card, I find it tricky to place it just right. So I thought that making cards without a sentiment would be a breeze! Well, I think it is even harder! 

That said, I am pretty happy with this card.

Image is "Friends 24-7" from Stampin' Up! inked using Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip.
Cardstock is also Chocolate Chip.

I embossed the whole image panel with the "Square Lattice" embossing folder also from SU.

Papers are from My Minds Eye

Flowers were created using the same papers and Spellbinders "Rose Creations" die.

I gave the whole card a spritz of glimmer mist.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

I hope you are all having a great week!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Michelle :o)
