Be yourself

Hi all
A bit of a departure from my usual 'pretty' cards.
I wanted a gungy look for a teenage Birthday.

I used a Coke can for the metal bits and used it so you could see
the printed side of the can for a more grungy look, don't know if
this is allowed!!

Hope you like this and leave comments for me, for or against,  all useful.

Butterflies and Bows

Hi All
Has been an awful day here, never stopped raining
I hope it has been better where you are.
My card for today is a Digi stamp from
called Girl Flower Butterfly by
Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.
I think it is just so beautiful and was a pleasure to colour.
I glazed the image, but unfortunately it does not show
in the photo.   I did have to be stricked with myself, to stop
putting embellishments on it, but I still managed a fair few.

Hope you like this offering, and would love to read your comments.
