I have not done a card for over a week so a dear friend gave me a nudge and told me to get into it and so after much procrastinating I chose to complete this challenge today as I loved the very simplicity of it. This challenge can be found over at The Fresh Batch if you are also wanting to take part and I urge you all to as it is such fun to make cards regularly.

Here is my take on the above sketch. If you look closely at the swiss dot embossing on the red cardstock you will see double imagery lol that is because I did the embossing on the wrong side and then decided to try it out on the other side forgetting to line up the dots and this was the outcome. I liked it so I kept it lol

Okay laters people. I have to get dressed and out of here for the newspaper to come and take our pics down at the shop.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Michelle, this is fabulous and you can't even tell the swiss dots is done once on purpose and once in error.
