Thank You!

Here's a card I made for the lovely Nicole to say Thank You for the lovely card and presents that she sent me...

My daughter bought me some gorgeous decoupage sheets for my Birthday... this is from an Art Deco Set... I've added some lace and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The gorgeous orange flower is a Prima one from Bunny Zoes. Also my favourite Marianne Anja Leaves and some pretty Flutter Bits butterflies and Gems from My Crafty Heart. There's also a little heart charm from my stash nestled beneath flowers on left....Sentiment was made on computer.

It's always hard to show decoupage in photo ... and it looks nicer in real life... not sure why the leaves have come out such a strange colour - they are green irl !!!!! but the light was really bad when I took the photos so had to use my light box!!

I would also like to say a big Thank You to Nicole who very kindly gave me this Award!!
