Hello friends,

Welcome, and thanks for visiting me today. I hope you had a good week! Today my card is back to the “Amelia style” again – designer paper, paper roses. pearls and an adorable Penny Black hedgie. I had much fun creating the clean and simple cards the past two weeks and I will for sure try to do more of them – but shabby/vintage style will always be my first choice!

I created this card with the following challenges in mind:

A close-up of “Rosy”

A peep at the inside

Project details:

  • White cardstock
  • Designer paper from KaiserCraft
  • Penny Black stamp “Rosy!’
  • Whimsy sentiment stamp
  • Paper roses
  • Hug Snug seam binding “Olorosa”
  • Heart pearls
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities die ‘Ovals”
  • Martha Stewart punch “Doily Lace”
  • Tim Holtz Alterations die ” Tattered Banners”
  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Tea Dye”
  • Lyra-Rembrandt aquarelle pencils for colouring

Thanks to each of you for your visits and kind comments.  Hope you have a good weekend and lots of time for crafting.

Till next time, kind regards from South Africa,
