Today's card is not my usual style. I bought a pack of black and white 'Butterflies and Lace' die-cut toppers by Lelli-Bot from a craft fair because I thought it would be useful to make some cards for 'older ladies' such as Grandmas. The set contained 8 toppers and co-ordinating papers - it was such good value I couldn't leave it on the shelves! (my excuse for a lot of my crafty purchases).
To add a bit of colour, I coloured the lady's frock and the backing papers with a gold pro-marker. I could have probably added a bit more in the way of embellishments - flowers etc - but I thought the papers were so busy I'd keep the images simple with a handful of yellow gems to decorate.
I'm not feeling any love for this card - I don't think the mixture of a CAS layout and the busy papers works... or maybe it's just too yellow!
Never mind - I enjoyed making it! I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
