New Papers

Hello Folks.

Happy tuesday to you all.

Last saturday, while the Alans were listening to City`s away match on the radio, I thought I`d sneak upstairs and do some browsing on the pc. The downside to that is that I always end up spending money but the upside is that I find things that I just have to have.
Since I had plenty of time I thought I`d take a peek at The Shabby Princess shop 
to see what goodies they had on offer. They are a digital scrapbook site but their papers can easily be adapted for cards and I already have loads. I came across a collection called Sprout of all things but the name doesn`t do it justice. The papers are gorgeous and the decorative elements are lovely too so when I finally get around to starting to scrapbook I already have some elements to go at.
Naturally I downloaded that one and another that took my fancy too and here is the card I made using just 2 of the papers. It`s not for any challenges or anything in particular, just to show off with.
Because the papers are so gorgeous I haven`t added any embellishments except a big blousy bow in Ivory and a sentiment.
The sentiment is Flourishes Tag Lines, stamped in black Memento ink and cut out with a nestie labels 4 die. While the card was still in the die, I chalked around the edges with some brown chalk.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
