Don't you just hate it when this happens
I had just about finished this card and was umming and ahhing about whether or not to put on the flourish. I had inked up the clear stamp and was looking through the acrylic block to see the effect on the card. I had just about decided that it would be better without the flourish, when the wretched thing fell off the acrylic block onto the card! I couldn't let all that work go to waste so here it is, but try to imagine it without the flourish.
I usually take pics of my cards on my old mobile phone. It 's so quick and easy to transfer the photos to my computer and it does take a reasonable picture. However it has decided that it's getting a little past it and I now cannot get it into camera mode. It's supposed to happen simply by opening the cover on the lens, but now it's having none of it! My current phone, although it's supposed to have exactly the same camera in it, cannot take a sharp shot close up! SO now I've gone back to trying my old digital camera. I hate technology when it ain't easy!
All this aside, this is for Just Magnolia - Monochrome, ABC Challenge - G - Green and I used the Sketch from Stamp With Us. The Stampin Up element in this card is the sentiment, which I tend to use over and over again as I think it's perfect for so many occasions. The papers are from Cuddly Buddly's Fairy Fun Range. The aforementioned flourish is from My Mind's Eye and the lace peeking from behind the strip on the left is my new stamp from Prima. The image is unmistakably young Tilda from Magnolia.
