It's a wrap!

It's a wrap is this week's dare, and I used vellum I've had so long it's vintage, along with yummy new Basic Grey Euphoria, which was sent to me by the fab and generous Kate, you're a star , thank you :)

Some pricking for faux sewing, inking with Brilliance Ink and some American Crafts ribbon. The tree stamp is rather delicious and from Purple Onion, love it. Thanks for looking :)

I've started so I'll finish

A quickie post, but the actual card took ages as I cut out all the swirls from a piece of K&Co Mira paper by hand. Once I was half way through I very nearly gave up but it was worth it. Quite therapeutic to do in front of the telly but I'll only make one, lol!
Fiskars cloud scissors, hole punch, berisfords ribbon and a scalloped cuttlebug cut circle. The stamp is Purple Onion, a cute freebie from a recent order :)

I'm late again with this weeks dare. Honest I was finished in time but then I got distracted *blush*. Mel is daring us to sprinkle our cards with gorgeousness, so I threw down a spoonfull of gems and glued them where they landed!

Papers and lace are K&Co, from Wild Safron, and the colours remind me of a swimming cozzie I had when I was a girl. I thought I was the bees knees in my grey and yellow striped number. It never ceases to amuse me how trends come round! Ribbon and gems from stash and faux stitching with pen finishes it off. Thanks for looking :)
