The Bell

Thank you all for your wishes and lovely comments. I had a slow start today as I partook of a bit of the old but tasty grape last night at a local establishment, hee hee. 
Living within easy distance of a peal of bells by Taylor's of Loughborough a good bell die was high up on my wish list and I am delighted with this one. Also had a wee go with a bit of distressing and love the effect with this embossing folder so a simple card was done. Hope you like it. 
Card is approximately 5x7 in white
backing is brown co-ordination card, bell is black co-ordination card
both run through the Couture Creations embossing folder Fretboard,
Dies used – Die-namics Chevron Stripes,  Memory Box Virtuoso Music and
 Dee's Distinctively Silhouette Bell.


  1. I hope your hangover has gone now. I guess it must have if you're crafting!
    A lovely card. Love the chevrons.

  2. Well Flora you did not overdo the partaking of the grape to be able to create such a lovey card.
    I love what you have done, I am also liking that background folder very much.
    Enjoy playing
