Happily Ever After .......

....... not on this card LOL!  You know when you try to experiment with things cos you've seen them on tutorials and on the TV and you buy the products and then get really disappointed as the end result looks nothing like it should .... well this is how I feel with this card and I think I should stick to what I know!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-

Papertake Weekly Truly Dimensional
Polkadoodles Tie The Knot

Would love to know what you think of this one as I am really unsure about the whole card.


  1. Blimey - did you really make those Fimo embellies yourself? They're VERY professional, Claire. This is a super card so don't be so hard on yourself. I've chucked the equivalent of a small rainforest in the bin this week and trust me, it needed to go in there. This is fab - I could never do those Fimo things. xx

  2. Hi Claire, I love it. Gorgeous spritzed background and fab shape. Those fimo cuties are so adorable, love the silver accents and the gems finish it a treat. All beautiful hun. :o)
