Peachy - 6th February

 This is probably a little 'Spring like' for February, but we need to brighten things up a bit, don't we?

This 8x8 card was made using  peach coloured card from stash as a base layer. It has a lovely silk sheen and feel to it. I then added a layer of card from my desert blooms pad which was itself matted and layered with another piece from the same pad. The photo doesn't do the colours of that particular card justice; in reality it is just a shade lighter than the one beneath it. I pin-pricked the edge of the second layer and used a white jelly roll pen to add faux stitches. I intended to go around the edges of the next layer with tea dye distress ink, but sometimes a small distraction will cause mistakes and that's what happened here. By the time I noticed, it was too late to change it. Not the end of the world though.

Felt has become a real like for me when using my Spellbinder floral dies...these are made from Spiral Blossom one and Flower Creations. I just added a  crafty pearl to the centre of each and tied a peach coloured ribbon.

Hope you like and thanks for visiting!
