Hanglar extened

I'm in the habbit of making cards and then making extras... I have a dream that one day I will have a craft table that is full of my goodies and feel that if I can make things that match then they might sale more...

I liked my card so much that I had a plan to make something to match. Its a base from papermania 6x6 bare it all pad. covered in the same recipe was my card.... bit annoyed as ive made it upside down and the holes are in the wrong place, so i had to remake them...

my colouring isnt the same...
I want to make 12x12 ones of these, but I need to loacte a base for them.
hope you like it :).

Aww I love Hanglar Stamps

starting making this card at the weekend. I wa happy with the base wasn't sure how to finish it and what image I was going to use... Today is my day off and this is my finished result.

K&CO papers
brown Kraft papers
pearls and swirls
silky ribbon
wild orchid crafts flowers
magnolia doo hickey dies
marianne die
