New beginnings!

Another late post as I have just returned from spending the day with family at the holiday park they are staying in, I am exhausted I don't know how they do it for a week, as I can hardly keepmy eyes open!!  So I will edit this post tomorrow to check for bloopers, until then excuse the typing as my brain has ceased to function!

Another simples card, as there are no DP's just an embossed spotty panel on the left hand side of this Z fold card. I like this fold at the moment isn't it funny how we all go through fazes of what type of card we make?

Side/inside view

The image is a lili of the valley stamp 'called  'christening', and has been stamped onto a Nellie snellen die cut that has been inked and pearled.  I have then coloured it with pro markers.

The flower and swirls are marianne die cuts and have been embellished with pearl gems, and inked around the edges to help them coordinate with the card.

The charm is from my stash

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by
