Make my Monday

Hello,

I stumbled across a new challenge blog this morning called Make My Monday and I think it has a monthly theme running through it and then each week an addition is added to change the mix slightly - well, thats if Ive got it right?!
This month's theme is Vintage and this week is added 'embossing' to it. Here's my card:


The bp is Pink Petticoat's Doodle Dots in Mocha, Ive used a CB snowflake embossing folder, the main image is an Inkadinkadoo bargain from Ebay and the leaves were images from a freebie acrylic stamp set in a craft mag last year.  I stamped it in Frayed Burlap DI and finished with a quick whiz with the sewing machine!
It's really beautiful here in Southampton but it's not due to last more than a day or so :(  Well, it is the British Summer after all!

Thanks for your visit,
Keryn x

This is beautiful Keryn. I love the colours, not the traditional christmas combo but it works so well.

Isn't our weather the best ? Talk about keep us guessing. I mean how boring would it be to have warm sunny weather everyday . . . lol

Hugs
