Quick Card

Hi Everyone....................hope you are all well and a huge welcome to my new followers x Its Great to have you on board here at Curious n Crafty Treasures.
Just a quick post from me today as the kids are coming over for dinner so I must head off and get cooking !!

The card below was made using the  gorgeous Madame Payraud Papers by Papermania, which my lovely crafty friend Astrid  introduced to mammy and I in April.

One sheet of the paper, cut two strips then edge with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. The middle section was matted on to some brown card. A piece of lace from my stash was adhered on to the matted card, then I added  a sentiment from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous  Simple Sayings Stamp Set. ( a really useful set)

A small flower, and a Madame Payraud Butterfly, a speckled stamp and some DI on the edge of the card and we are done........well except for the insert, which I like to personalise where possible. There are also some delightful card verses available on the internet, which you can copy and then print.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and I will be back on Tuesday with my Craft Room Challenge Project. xx
