Plain old shabby!

I think I'm going through a phase with my colouring. I just seem to be fighting it all the way! What I'm trying to say is please don't inspect this one too closely!!!
So, let's concentrate on the positives. The beautiful papers are First Edition 'Love Letters'. They're such a beautiful combination of pinks and browns (and some dodgy greens which remain ominously unused). The little frame is a Melissa Frances embellishment and they are just super cute. Still lovin' the big bow look too! lol. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the dies are Magnolia Doohickeys. I've stamped vintage LOTV corners with walnut distress ink on the main image. I attacked all the edges of the papers with scissors - not wise when hormonal. I went a bit mad and ripped a bit but have hidden the offending piece under a flower!!!! Sometimes where I place an embellishment has nothing to do with aesthetics!!

That's me for today. It's been one of those days - very occasionally I wish my daughter took after her father and not me. Life would be SO much easier. lol!

Hugs to all, Jayne xx

Your card turned out just lovely - nothing wrong with the coloring. And I think we all have used embellishments as cover ups one time or ten :)

you're being far too self-critical Jayne - it looks great, your colouring is fab and that's what embellishments are for, isn't it...? Lol!
