Two turtle doves

This card has been sat on my desk half finished for about a week now.  I am struggling to find my mojo (I think Mr Kindle did off with it because I am so into reading at the moment I am walking about the house doing chores, cooking, etc with my nose stuck to it).  Notice it’s a Mr – always male orientated where blame has to be laid!!  So I am going to quickly do this post, make a couple of magazine cards then it’s a lazy day on the sofa reading …. bliss

The paper is Inkido Coming Home for Christmas.  The star on the inside of the card is from a new A5 sheet from Lili of the Valley being released soon.

The velvet poinsettia is from Hobbycraft, the 25mm rose, 15mm rose, 4mm rose buds and Flat Backed Scalloped Pearls as well as that gorgeous lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The wee pine cones are from the bottom of my garden Smile
