Card Patterns #142


Last week's Card Patterns sketch #142 was really neat... so I made a card with it... but by the time I finished and got the photo taken..... I'd missed the deadline.

Christmas Tag card

I used patterned papers from My Mind's Eye and Hot of the Press packs.  They actually co-ordinated well together.  The oval panel is a one of a set of tags I bought.  8 for $3.99.   Four of these tags and 4 other ones.  I was lucky that one of the Spellbinders oval scallops was the perfect size for a matt.

Do you like my new header.... I decided I needed something Christmassy... so found this one over at The Background Fairy.  And there's a great tutorial about adding your own title.

It's been a lovely weekend here in Auckland.  Some of our chrysalis have hatched.

Just hatched

These are drying off in the warm sun.

Have a great week..

Oh I love this card! It has such a vintagey feel and homespun quality to pretty! And your header is lovely. I like that you changed things up for the season.

Beautiful! Really love that gold foil edge around the oval paper! The pop of red is wonderful looking! I love your new banner, Dawn! I'm constantly changing mine up but I think I have one now that I like until next time. :)
