Image from CraftsUPrint. Single layer...no decoupage for me this time...don't know how I managed NOT to do that ha ha.
Vellum from stash + border made using Pergamano Multi Grid No. 6

New Year Resolutions ????

I found a new site - DigiSparkle - get some fab digistamps there at great prices :-)
Used one of their background stamps for this New Year's Resolution card, and decoupaged the different elements of it - including some of the bricks :-) :-) :-)  Added one of their round frames with a New Year's Resolution .... Bit how I feel at the moment after too much Christmas scoff !!!! ha ha

PURPLE PASSION

For this card I used the purple buttefly backing paper (Kay + Co). I overlaid it with white Vellum with a Pergamano border, which took me a couple of hours to do. I then decoupaged the butterflies and frames on the front and added a couple of peel-off corners. The insert has the same paper with an added verse and I also lined the envelope.
