No shell like home

Well, this card only took me a week to make lol.  Yep the dizziness and disorientation is still here …. to the max, as is the nausea.  So everything seems to be in slow motion most of the time. 
Anyhow, I did manage to get this one done, one of the new Sugar Nellie stamps – No shell like home.

The paper is by Pion Design
The Raschel Lace and seam binding is from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the flowers.  The purple colour is called Walnut.  The flowers used are Cottage Roses (both sizes), lilies, 15mm roses.  I also used a filigree antique gold butterfly and some pearls to finish off.

  46. Hi Bev - Anne, Amethyst Wool & Crafts, now in Whickham. I always send people over to your blog for inspiration as we don't sell as much cardmaking goods as we used to compared to when we were in Blaydon. Hope you feel better soon as it sounds like you might have a bad case of Vertigo. I had it some years ago and was in bed for over a week before they gave me the right tablets for it and then it took another month before I was back to feeling normal. Anyway hope you get better soon and back doing your beautiful, stunning cards, love to the dogs as they look gorgeous.
    Take Care
