Crafty Cardmakers spotlight - decoupage


For this fortnight over at Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight our spotlight is on decoupage.  I don't do decoupage very often, although I do sometimes layer up bits of stamped images.  I wasn't sure what to use for this challenge, and then I remembered a free Forever Friends booklet that came with a magazine.  I found this decoupage and the papers in there.

I've punched a border using the MS scallop dot punch, added some little flowers (x-cut punch) and pearls.  The tag sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the button is from my stash.  Just a simple little card.

As there's no stamping on my card, I'm entering it for Creative Card Crew's 'no stamps' challenge (my 2nd entry).

Apologies for my lack of commenting yesterday - we had such a busy weekend, what with getting my desk set up and my room reorganised, and then yesterday we went to my mum's.  And then hubby decided he 'needed' a new phone... I knew there would be a catch to him buying my new desk lol!  So off we went to Crystal Peaks.  All day I was just itching to get in my room and make something, so I spent the evening up there and didn't really do any blogging at all.  I'll catch up later :o)
