playing with my stash...................

This little card started out with me being bored cos my OH was watching a really old war film last night.
So,out came my craft stuff and I started to rip upbits of wallpaper samples and old bits of paper,I did get a few funny glances,but nothing was said,then I inked them with black to look aged,then stuck them on a card.
For a contrast I put on the fairy as she has been hiding ,waiting for a card for ages,lol.
Added a few other bits and 'voila'
I,m pleased with it anyway,dont think my kids will be impressed though,they like cards to look like they came from the shop,I like to be different.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges.


  1. What a fab card. It's all lovely but I particularly like the bows/bell and the flower.
