Scrappy card ...

Hi there!

I'm so glad it's friday ... the end to a long week and I can always relax once club night is done ... and it was very busy last night ... but we somehow managed to muddle through and make our projects as well as other bits and bobs ...
My desk was such a mess after preparing the projects and after I had cleared up .. I made a little card with some of the scraps and things hanging around ...


I love the teal colours ... and I love textures ...


I sprinkled some mica flakes over the distressed cardboard heart ... how they remind me of Lux soap flakes Lol! who remembers those?
I know this card is kind of 'different' for me but it looks so nice in real life that I may just have to grab more scraps and maybe play some more ...
I'm off to Lincoln tomorrow ... visiting my sweet adorable aunt ... can't wait! And did I tell you the cat was back? sporting a pink collar with a bell and tag ... she comes in the evening and stays over ... Yep, I'm running a B&B for cats! 

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by ...

I remember Lux flakes, Ros. Wow... the good old days. Funny thing is, I don't remember when they stopped making it. Guess I didn't miss using it.
When I was looking at your card, the heart was the first thing I noticed and I was thinking..."I wonder what she put on it for the sparkle". Now I know... sure turned out to be a winner.
Have a great visit with your Aunt.
Hugs,
Linda B

Congrats on having a B&B; I have no doubt it will be succesful :)

And your card? I never get enough of your scraps. This card is gorgeous!

I love your use of mica flakes on that heart. And yes; I do remember the LUX soap flakes :)
