My Sweetheart

Hi everyone. What a sad few days it has been. As a huge David Bowie fan, I was really shocked to learn of his death. I was actually quite surprised by how sad I felt, but it seems to have affected many people in the same way.

Today's card is a CAS Valentine card, made using Docrafts Forever Friends Classic Decadence. This decoupage topper, sentiment and the papers were actually free gifts with Creativity magazine. At first I wasn't sure about them, so they have sat in a drawer for a while. Then I came up with the idea for this card and I must admit I really love the result.

The banners have been cut with my new Sizzix Framelits Banner Dies. I've wanted some for a while so treated myself after Christmas. The black card is from The Range, the gold card is from a Create and Craft Member's gift and the cream card is Creative Expressions Foundation Card in Milk. I sat on my hands and didn't add any more embellishments.

Thank you for visiting and for all your comments. Cathy x
