Oh so pretty

I’m so sorry for the lack of posts – it’s been a chaotic week to say the least.

This is another of my cousin’s creations – it uses the gorgeous Pretties kit. I remember her bringing this kit over on one of her visits and allowing me to take all the pieces out to look at them. But when I suggested actually using some of them, she went pale. Glad to see she’s overcome her fear!

  1. This looks really classy & effective. Love the way you have used the oval puch & flower together.

  2. A lovely card! I know exactly how your cousin felt with the idea of using precious crafting goodies - I used to be the same! Blogging has now forced me to use everything and even put scissors to my most precious dp! Using it up gives the excuse of needing more LOL!

  3. What a pretty card. Love the oval shape and flowers!

  4. Oh, how pretty! I love the purple. The flower and sentiment look great too!

  5. The cousin has overcome a lot of fears lately!! :) CC
