Indulgence

My project on Bubbly Scrumptious this week is, I admit, a bit self-indulgent!

Ever since Tanya's fab Shabby Chic challenge on the Daring Cardmakers a few weeks ago I've taken every opportunity that presents itself to go down the fling-as-much-on-as-you-can route. I just adore this style of card-making, probably because I get to include so many of the things I enjoy using all on one card.
The downside is that they'll rarely fit in an envelope so making a box becomes essential - or alternatively, you find the box then make the card to fit...

Anyway, moving away from C-word projects for a while is good, and as this months Bubbly Funk kit has a mixture of Christmas and non-Christmas goodies in it, this week I've kept well away from the Christmas stuff and made a birthday card for my favourite Aunt.

The papers in the "Enchanted" kit are so soft and pretty that they are just perfect for a shabby chic project. I'm really pleased with how this has turned out, I hope my Aunt likes it (fingers crossed the proposed postal strike doesn't put the kibosh on her getting it on time), and I hope you will too.
I've written step-by-step instructions with lots of pictures on how to make it HERE in the hope that anyone who thinks they look too complicated will be able to see just how easy to make these cards are.
I'd love to hear what you think of this sort of card, and even more than that, I'd love to see anything you make as a result!

Now I've got a real problem, Vanessa has set the dare for tomorrow's dcm and I haven't a clue what I'm going to do.....
Have a great day
