365 Cards - #122 It's A Wrap

Well today over at 365 Cards the challenge that Pam set for us was to use a wrapping paper on your card. Now I gotta say that I may have cheated on this a little as I am staying with my Mum and she is housesitting for friends so I did not want to ruffle through their belongings to find some wrapping paper so today while at the LSS I bought this one piece of paper with no name on it but I loved it because of the pattern and the colours and to me it looks a bit like wrapping paper so I used it and that is how I cheated. . .not intentionally but through necessity. So there you have it my card for today.

In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla cardstock. Unknown designer paper. Kaisercraft flowers. SU Silver brad. Twine from my stash. SU Always stamp set. Ranger Broken China and Walnut Stain distress ink.

Michelle, I love it! It is so pretty - 'cheating'? Who said anything about cheating? Not me!! Great job, TFS

Michelle, this is absolutely beautiful and I don't think it is cheating if you tell us. Besides you could of just did the card and said it was some wedding paper you had and went from there. Love the paper, the distressing on the edges and the flower with embellishment. Great job.

did I hear cheating, what, where who, I'll have to put a stop to this :). Great card, Missy, and it is so great you can play even though you are away from home. I wish I could do that great of a job without all my toys.

Wow - would never have known it was not wrapping paper. Cheating - No - sometimes we have to do what we have to do.
