An artist.......

I've made this card using paper from the Repro Depot pattern book on cdrom. I also cut a nestie out from the same paper with my one of my newest "ironwork" dies. the tree is embossed and it came with the sentiment from the same stamp set that I got at the Doncaster show a few weeks ago, it is becoming quite a staple item in my craft box. The three roses were also bought at the show.
I'd like to enter this card into CD Sunday challenge - trees and Crafts and Me challenge-shabby chic/vintage.

I'm going to the annual Notts Literary Champagne luncheon tomorrow - the guest speaker is Alan Titchmarsh so I think it will be entertaining.

It is LOVELY, Linby. The new nestie is so artistic and the tree is beautiful. The sentiment is amazing and so true.
Made my older one read it and she went, 'it is kind of sad...'
The deckled edge looks perfect.
