New Home

 Good Monday Morning to you all!

I am back after a awful bout of illness but so thankful to be feeling better!  Hope you've all be well & up to some crafty business?

OK, on to my card - y'know sometimes when you've kinda pleased with what you've created but then there is that nagging feeling that something just isn't right? Yes? Well that is this card.  I keep looking at it and feel like something is missing and it's just hit me! I should of added a third colour - black! In my mind's eye I can see it would've worked fine & made the card 'pop' more.  Oh well, we live 'n' learn!

My ingredients:
5 x 5 Square card blank
Kanban's New home papers & toppers from All Occasions kit
Gold mirri card (stash)
red ribbon (stash)
Bow border - Marianne Craftables
Gems (Stash)

There you go! I think I'm getting back into the swing of crafting again after being poorly, & I need to catch up of blogs & comments.  I think I will just be checking up on all your latest makes and commenting on those otherwise I will be overwhelmingly tired trying to catch up!

I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with a Mother's day card to show you.

Thank you all, once again, for all your lovely comments you leave me :)

Until next time,

I think it works just fine without the black... you could always make another one just to satisfy your curiosity.... it's nice to see you here in Blogland xxx

Glad you're feeling better - lovely card - only suggestion would be to try a white background behind the frame to bring the focus back to the frame.

Great card and papers, I know what you mean about the black, but I still think this looks fab without it :) That little birdhouse is just to cute :) xx
