Crealies

Crealies asked me to do a GDT spot for them in March, this is the final card.  It’s a very quick, simple one – I have been in bed most of the weekend with back pain again and did not have it in me to be too creative or do anything that took too long.  Fortunately I had Inkido and Pion Design papers handy so didn’t have to sit and colour an image.

I have used Crealies border die, Creative Shapes leaves die and Creative Flowers die.

The 20mm rose and 15mm roses and seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the crystal button is from The Ribbon Girl.
