Stylish Lady


On a Tuesday my stamping up team leader haa a Facebook live team talk and one of the thing she said we should try this week was to make a card for someone not because it was there birthday but just because, she also said we should pick a couple of colours at random which i did and this is what i came up with,not my usual colour combo Lemon and Lime twist and Berry Burst but I think it can out ok. I picked Beautiful you stamp set as it is one of my favourite sets of stamps from stamping up you can use them for so many different occasions.
