Pink Art deco

Good Morning my crafty pals. Hope you are all well and I will be very glad of a visit and your company today as always. While the weather was reasonable it was easier to keep away from my crafting but yesterday was miserable and today is atrocious, no doubt the ducks will be carrying out an inspection of the water level quite soon.
I had a wee shuffle through my die cutters, I must get a better storage system than my biscuit and shoe boxes - hee hee. My had fell automatically to one of my favourite dies so I had a play with a ready printed topper albeit I did glitz it a bit, and enough of a mix of straight and jaunty angles. I was reasonably happy with it and hopefully the photo isn't too bad.
I have had some better sleep over the last 5 nights and my eyes are less irritated so should be back to a bit of colouring in soon. I shall hopefully get around your blogs as the day goes and comment also, but please excuse the spelling. Hope you are all enjoying your crafting and messing about.

Image – Topper possibly from Nancy Watt.
Paper and card - card blank is an A5 made with Pearlescent card.
and the maroon card from my messy stash,
Dies used – the Die-monde Charles Rose.

I am entering this into :- In the Pink - Challenge #8


  1. This is lovely Flora. Love that image and die cut. Have to admit I tried to find it on line but I think the company stopped trading.
    Beautiful pinks and just enough sparkle.
    Glad that you are feeing better

  6. Hi Flora,
    nice to have you back. I hope the eyes didn't cause too much discomfort.
    What a stunning card, I love the colours, design, and of course that superb die cut and image.
    I do love the Art Deco era such wonderful classical designs, from the clothes to the furniture, and especially the jewellery.
