Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.
I very much appreciate every visit, and comment.

Today I have a card I made with some of my lovely Graphic 45 papers from the Enchanted Forest Series.

This is a 8"x8" size card I made from black card.
The green shade of card is from Tonic, and distressed the edges with scissors.
The papers, and images are from the Graphic 45 Enchanted Forest 8" pad.
I painted some inside of cardboard with Starlight paints in the top right hand corner.
The leaves are die cut from black card painted with Starlight paints.
My mesh flowers had a plastic backing on them so I took that off to give them a messy look, and sprayed them with Phill Martin's Old Gold Shimmer Mist.
Sorry that doesn't show up too good in the photo.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Love your leaves Jenny. I saw the Starlight paints being demo'd at the NEC and was sorely tempted but I desisted. Must save my pennies at the moment as we have a huge Bathroom install going on in January. Hugs Mrs A.

PS I've taken to keeping my G45 papers for Scrapbooking (when I start haha), I love them so much that I don't want to 'give them away' in a card, is that really sad hahaha xx

Really like the way you've been using these fab G45 designs. The golden shades in the motifs look just splendid with the bold colors of the background. Like the way you've distressed some of the motifs and I'm admiring your use of these. I tend to hoard my G45 papers because I don't really know how to use them well. The front of this card is just luscious with the golden leaves, the bold burlap the nature theme you've got going with the enchanted forest designs! TFS & Hugs.
