Freshly Made Sketches #4

Hey Everyone

I love being on holidays when it’s school holidays.  The kids can drive me a bit mad sometimes, but the amount of time I get to play in my craft room far more outweighs the time they drive me insane.

My card today is for this weeks challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  When I saw the sketch I straight away thought of using my scallop envelope die (I have only ever used it twice before! -shocking really) – I thought I’d better get some use out of it!

This is my card:

This is a pic of the tag to show you it comes out of the envelope.

This is a close up of the tag – I really like these words but haven’t had the chance to use them until now.

I was a Perfect Princess at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Beau Chateau
Ink: Black Stazon
