Good Luck xx

Well hello everyone I'm back with a "Good Luck" card that I have been asked to create for my Friend.

Had a good think about this one as she wanted the card to be vintage and with the name of the new coffee shop to be on it and well I am really pleased with the final design and my friend said I had excelled to I think she liked it, lets just hope the lady who receives it does too!!!
I actually used my Magnolia Boutique stamp for the shop window I have used this a few times and its so useful and the little stamps I have used for the name you can find here at Natalie and Amy's shop.
I have used my distress inks after colouring the image and have distressed all the paper edges.
Can't send a card with out flowers and bling.
You can see one of the metal corners which I have used on this photo also available from Natalie and Amy's store.
I simply adore these pink paisley papers just superb for the vintage feel.
Added a "Good Luck" banner which is a Magnolia DoHickey threaded onto natural twine and stamped with the same stamps as the above window.
The digi inside is one my friend Lynne sent me to play with years ago and never used and its just perfect for the coffee shop as always I have coloured with my Pro's!
More lush paper for the back and an oval nestie with a SU "Good Luck" sentiment on so that there is somewhere to write and my personal stamp.

Don't forget you can get all your crafting essential and so much more from Natalie and Amy's store and no postage if you spend over £10.00!!!!!

Just a little update I have a new car which I am getting used to and making sure that I park it in the garage at night as that its safe!!  I haven't been doing much crafting as I don't seem to be able to concentrate long enough to finish anything my card above has been made over two days as and when I felt crafty but I do like it!!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend its lovely and sunny here in Sheffield.

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxxxx
