Hello again dear friends - how nice to see you again. As part of Astrid's ICAD swap, I received my first package today from the lovely Maryanne in the US and was delighted with the contents. Hope you'll pop over to see it here on her blog and give her a quick hello while you're there.
Meanwhile, my second card and holder was received in Germany - so pleased it got there by the deadline of 11th September requested by Astrid. Here are a few pics. This is the front of the holder and you can see I managed to get the front fastening on the wrong side (again!) What am I like?
And lastly, my card inside the folder. The background was done with Fresco paints then the texture added with Grungepaste through some stencils then rubbed with treasure gold - I'm getting a little more adventurous with this now. The pink flower was decoupaged on top of the blue one I did first and didn't like but I was happy how it turned out.
