Amazing what you find.......

.....whilst rootling for something totally different. I came across a few notelets in amongst a box of embellishments that had obviously been squirrelled away ages ago - and as a quick break from making the Ruby Wedding card came up with this:
 Ooops, it looks kinda dark in the photo though - I took the photo after dark and due to a plethora (big word!) of other stuff on my desk there was no room there to take a photo using the daylight lamp.

I used:

- 6" x 6" square cream card stock

- 'Botanical prints' notelet, trimmed down a bit and layered onto cream card from the snippets folder

- backing paper from the Papermania Capsule Collection 'Verde' paper pack

- peachy orange organza ribbon from stash

A quick make - which is more than can be said for the other project :)

That is a lovely card, very Victorian in style, but not overloaded. I am getting more and more hungry today, what with someone else talking about Devilled Eggs, and now all that luscious fruit on your card. xx Maggie

Lovely card, Di. I like the vintage style and peach and green is a pretty colour combination. Elizabeth x
