Hello again,

I've been absent from blogland for a while as I've been busy making stuff for the village Xmas Fayre. I have booked a table and hope to sell lots of crafty bits and pieces to raise money for St Catherine's Hospice.
Also, a couple of days ago I finally bought myself a DSLR, so exciting! I'm still playing with it but managed to take this half decent shot of my latest card which I'm entering into LIM'S Metallic challenge.

This time I have created a gap card and used my new Xcut star dies (£10 cheaper than Spellbinders!) The mirri board stars (some embossed) were glued onto black pearlised card which almost has a metallic sheen to it.
On one side of the card I added a tab cut on the Labels One nesties, on which I had printed the sentiment.

The gap leaves little space inside for a greeting, but I tried to pretty it up all the same.
I'm not a big fan of metallics especially in crafting so I don't have a lot of suitable stash, hope this will qualify though.

Thanks for taking time to stop and look.
