Celebration Card

How are we today crafters?  Piling on more layers of clothes I should imagine!! Well here in Blogland it's always a warm welcome so off we go with today's offering - a Fizzy Moon celebration card.  Remember when I showed you my craft buys in the January sales?  Well here's 'one I made earlier'!


I decided to go all out on this one and made my first pinwheel and I'm pleased with it - I used hammered card and sponged it with salmon chalk, topped off with a cute button from my stash.  The heart brad is a Fizzy Moon glossy metal one and the doily is from my local market!  I distressed the paper edges - a salmon chalked paper for the base and a gorgeous glittered Fizzy Moon paper on top.  Don't the couple look sweet?






I decorated the inside by chalking the hammered card, leaving a blank white centre for a personal message.  I added borders to match the front of the card and distressed the edges. The scalloped chipboard topper highlights the cute couple!
This card is available to buy on my CraftyMe Crafts shop at http://thecraftersbarn.co.uk, a new venture of mine.  Did I mention that?!!

My Promarkers have been calling me, so keep an eye out for my next card with a Tiddly Inks digital stamp!

This is my first 'scheduled' post, so fingers crossed it's worked.

Enjoy your day, whatever you do! 

Keep popping in,
