I have absolutely no idea where the last week has gone - I have been making stuff but as it's for a DT I can't post it! (Am trying to get as far ahead as is humanly possible so that I am not rushing about at the last minute - or even worse forgetting what I need to do altogether!)
I did make up a couple of quick cards for the stash box both using off cuts from one of my fave paper stacks - here's the first share -
a simple design (and one I have used before with Ella Rose papers) but think it is effective and of course quick - which is great if you want a birthday card in a hurry!!
3 different bits of paper from Tilda Flower Garden all stitched together.
The rose is once again made using nesties, sprinkled with water and scrunched up. This time though before securing all the layers together with a brad, I took a scrap of lace and made it into a circle, using it as the first 'petal layer'.
Once the brad was in place I put a large blob of Stickles in the centre to cover the top of the brad, then randomly dabbed the glitter onto the flower petals.
The leaves were cut from a punch and I simply stamped the sentiment onto another scrap and tucked it behind the flower.

Am sorry the pic is a bit naff and it doesn't show the colour at all well - but the light here is truly truly bad - so you'll just have to believe me when I tell you it looks quite pretty 'in real life'!! x
