I've had a fab weekend - hope you all have too. Last night I went to the open air cinema to watch Dirty Dancing - it was great, everyone was cheering, singing and dancing along.
Anyway this morning I made a card for my friend at work and you may have guessed that her favourite colour is purple. She also bought a hula hoop last week to help her get fit - so this image is just perfect.
For once it's a fairly decent photo as I managed to take it outside - what a difference natural light makes!
The paper is from Docrafts, it's so lovely and sparkly and the image is Digi Stamp boutique.
The summer memory box border die is cut into felt - not something I'll be doing again in a hurry as after about 5 attempt and even with a layer of card on top of the die and under the felt it didn't cut completely in places and I had to make some little cuts with my scissors. Unfortunately one of the little butterflies didn't make it - however I don't think the recipient will notice so we'll keep that little fact between ourselves!! In the mean time if you have any tips for me on cutting fiddly dies into felt - I'm all ears!
