For a girlie this time
A crafting friend Carole over at Camcraft Creations reminded me that my nesties could be used slightly differently - there are so many different techniques for everything that the brain sometimes has overload & forgets........
They are embossed straight onto the card rather than cutting & embossing as I've got into a rut doing lately :-)
I stamped the cottage straight onto the card & coloured it with my copics.
I used ribbons & blooms & matted the card so that it has the contrasting boarder round it.
The blooms had purple jeweled centers which I covered in gold stickles which toned in better.
