Change from the clean and simple tonight, I finally managed to bring myself to cut into the fabulous Wallflower collection papers, trouble is that they are so beautiful that I then don't want to cover the paper up so I have still kept reasonable simple with this card.Stamped the Joycraft postcard stamp twice and gently distressed it, then just added the seam binding bow. Dyed the seam binding with dylusions postbox red  ,matching the postal theme ?  I now have postbox red fingers to match too, looks quite gory!

  2. Oh, Joan, das ist eine wunderbare Karte.
    Dieser Stempel als Postkarte gefällt mir sehr.
    Ist die Rose gleich mit drauf?
    Es sieht so schön romantisch aus.
    Ich bin ganz verliebt in deine Karte.

    Sonnige Grüße

  3. Gorgeous and utterly romantic. I do know how you feel about covering some of the beautiful DP's we all keep. They are far to nice to cut or cover and you can never ever ever use the last piece of that design can you? Thank you for sharing with us at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe
