Tatty Sleeps

For this card, I've used a Tatty Twinkles stamp I've has since launch but never even opened! I love this image, it's so cute and I love the open spaces on the petals, gives real scope to able to colour easily.The backing paper is from Craftwork cards and suits the colours I've used perfectly.

Classy birthday card

Hello all, for today's post I've made a very simple card, but none the less very classy. I've used the Groovi system from Clarity and backed the parchment paper onto black card.

I love parchment craft, but as of yet have had very little time to play, hopefully I will get some more time to practice soon.
