Everything Eleanor

Hey there,

I don't know if the weather is like it where you are but its very close here despite torrential downpours earlier  today.  In fact I actually enjoyed standing talking to a colleague earlier today as it was raining.... am I weird or what?  Answers on a postcard only!!!!

Anyway, after my epic journey and tale about my trip to Vienna I am actually going to post a card I made earlier this month for my sister in laws birthday.  I love the Everything Eleanor stamp set as its so versatile if you think about it.... you have the stamp that could be a tag, swirls that are good for scrapbook pages as well as cards, not to mention all the different flowers and the little bird.

The colours I used are Confetti Cream card and Rose Red with Wild Wasabi for the "vine" effect and Soft Suede for the bird.  It was the first time I had used the Confetti Cream card and was very pleased to discover that it was sturdy enough to be used as the base card as well as a layer, unlike Whisper White and Very Vanilla.  I have now ordered the Confetti White card so hopefully it will be the same consistency as the Cream.  Its not a bad price either at £8.25 for 40 sheets.

For this card I cut out the flowers and layered them up using dimesionals to give the card a bit of height.  A pearl was then added to the centre of the flowers as a finishing touch.  I'm pleased to say that my sister in law liked the card and has subsequently bought the set, although I think the fact that we were using it last Saturday in my class might have had something to do with it as

I'll be back soon with a different card that I did for my sister in law who is going to a wedding this Friday and wanted a "special" card, but more about that later. 

If you would like to order any of the products used to make this card, or any other items from the catalogue, then please don't hesitate to get in touch.  I can have them delivered directly to your door as long as you live in the UK.
