One more card

This will be my last card as it is now christmas eve and I am going to be pretty busy now.This was made by printing off the image and backing papers, I would be lost without my Cds. I have so many now I think I could match pretty much anything . I would like to try stamping now so I need to collect some stamps and paints.

The side of the card has been trimed with a lace punch, I have used an image and backing paper from Joanna Sheens RHS Cd matted it with linen silver card, stamped and embossed the butterfly .Finished with some peel offs. I have also finished the inside off with a pocket and tag  Doreen xxx
