Lilac Card

Hello there bloggers.  I hope you’re all doing well.

The card I want to share with you today is a birthday card.  I think I’ve finally found my style now.  Oh and I made myself a light box so hopefully you’ll notice a difference in the picture quality from now on – the last ones have not turned out well at all.  I think it makes the card look cleaner and more lifelike so I’m really chuffed with these ones, in fact I took loads of pics and have gone all arty on you all Flirt male

So we have the front of the card…


The “arty” shots show the side on view, the insert and the bottom one (my fav) shows the card with the matching envelope.  I’ve started adding matching inserts to these – I think it looks really pretty.
