Not my usual style....

And I'm not really sure if I like it. I was playing around with some of my new stuff I got from the NEC. I got this stamp because I've never got anything suitable for anniversary cards. I embossed it using my new silver embossing powder and the heat tool I had to blow the dust off! I was aiming for clean and simple - but did it just come out boring??? I won the lace from Suzanne (thankyou!), the pearls are from ebay and the lilac card was some I've had for ages.
I'm sorry about the hideous picture. I think all of my photos are going to be hideous now until Spring!
All feedback gratefully received!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx

hi there, I have been back from India from my wedding for a while, and now have just started to get back into the swing of things. Slowly but surely. A stunning card, I have enjoyed reading and catching up on your blog. Thank you for your support on my blog.

I have a daylight bulb in a normal flexi lamp and shine that on my cards when I photograph them, it does help
