Managed to get the 2nd MUM card done for the order.

Can you remember a few posts ago when i said I would be using paper etc that I had for a while - well here is some of that paper.

The background swirl paper was KI Memories - that I am sure I got when I subscribed to a magazine. The dotty paper was bought from a local POUND shop - for - you guessed a £1.00. I did get 12 sheets of papers for a £1.00, but I have to say that the dotty paper was the best of the bunch.

To give the swirl paper a bit of 'life' I hand stitched on some of the swirls. The photo above shows you the stitching better.

I used HOTP Monograms that I covered with the dotty paper. I inked round the edges of the letters with an Anna Griffin Ink Pad, added some ribbon and mounted the letters on foam pads.

I like the card, but hubby thinks its a bit too green. Ever the critic he is!!!
