I hope that the Easter bunny has visited and you are having a lovely long weekend. Unfortunately, no cholocate for me yesterday as I spent most of it in bed with a migraine. Definitely not what I had in mind for Easter Sunday. I hope today is a better one and that we get some sunshine in Melbourne after this cold, foggy morning.
Onto to brighter things, today I have a another simple card for you using the Sweet Stitches DSP from the current Autumn/Winter mini catalogue. This paper is quite busy in terms of colour and pattern, so one way to use it is in small amounts. Although I have put the patterns close together it gives an overall impression of bright colour without one pattern being overwhelming.
The colours and patterns of these papers remind me of the 1930's quilting fabrics. I've paired it with the (now) rarely heard sentiment from the 'You're a Gem' stamp set, which goes perfectly, I think. This card is for my Mum's friend who took the photos at her recent birthday event and sent me them to me on a disk.
