Masculine Stripes and Candles

Long time, no blog ... sorry!  busy, busy, busy, same old, same old ...
Anyhow, shall see how this lovely peaceful Sunday pans out ...

First up, a masculine card based on this week's sketch from freshlymadesketches.  Once I'd embossed the bottom half of the card with the stripes folder, it reminded me of candles - so I added some silver "flames"!

At first glance, the Nursery Nest DSP papers appear to be all pink, pastels and ideal for baby cards.  However, look a little closer and you'll find several striped and spotty papers ideal for masculine combos.  

Spend £45.00 with me this April and you'll receive a pack of DSP papers FREE (offer includes Nursery Nest, Pocketful of Posies, Beyond the Garden and Berry Blossoms).

Thanks for popping by!
