The dark card is actually a burgundy colour but it looks brown in the pic, and the Maestro couldn't do anything to change it especially in the dreadful light on Friday.
I used an image out of the LOTV Christmas Angels (Set 16) to which I added a smidge of Wink of Stella to make it sparkle. This is on her wings, the stars and the garland on her head, but it doesn't quite show up here. It really is a very simple card and the only fiddly bit was the edge where I used a Tonic Header Fold die. These aren't very long so I made the cut in the centre of the edge and then had to ensure that both the ends matched - I used a pair of Fiskars Corner Edger scissors to round them off.

This is another one that's quite flat, so extremely suitable for posting! I quite like the Header Fold die but I need to practise with some bits of card before I actually use it on a fold - wish they were a little bit longer though!!! I do sound like a right GOM don't I - (Grumpy Old Mare) I think it's the weather to be honest, we've had cloud all day today (Saturday) and it was so cold the Maestro (bless his little cotton socks) even put the heating on for an hour or two. Blossom didn't know whether she wanted to stay in or go out so decided to sit on the mat by the back door, she then looked at Graham as if to say "Come on dad, switch the sunshine on!" Oh were it sooooo easy!!
Anyway that's enough of me now, although I must say I have been thinking about Flora (Crafty Lark) today, I do hope she didn't get her titfer wet 'cos it looked glorious! Bet her wellies got a bit of a bashing (although not sure when she was going).
Hope you are all bearing up, I do know that some of my friends are going through the mill at the moment so I am sending virtual hugs their way and that definitely includes those of you who are caring for a poorly family member. Take care.
Hugs to you all
