Simple Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

I'm demoing at the Craft Company at Fleetwood today from 10am to 4pm pop along if you are in the area (there is a vintage car rally on as well in the town so plenty to do)  Today's card is one that I will be demoing and is the card spotted in the background of the picture for Thursdays card!

This is made using the ornate pierced noble design die used to make the card blank as well as all the layers.  I use a plethora of techniques on this card which makes it a perfect demo card!

If you want to know how to make this one you will need to come and see it in real life, though I may make a Christmas one and list the instructions for that one a week on Wednesday as my design Team entry for Creative Expressions.
