A Silver Heart

Hello friends,

It is such a long time since I posted a card, time is just running away with me the last couple of weeks. We had a busy time at work and at home but I am glad to be back with a quick wedding card I created for a friend.  As she likes the clean and simple style, I used an embossing folder for the background and added a metal heart, some satin ribbon, a few gemstones and two paper roses. I love how the fleur-de-lis pattern of the embossing folder compliments the metal heart. Well, as a shabby chic and vintage junkie, I just had to add roses somewhere on my card! The sentiment is from JustRite stamps.

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

  • Metal heart

Thanks for visiting today, I always appreciate your comments. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.

Regards from a cold winter’s day in South Africa,

Amelia
