Using up some stash!

Hi friends......happy Wednesday!
Can't believe how fast the days are going, it'll be the weekend before we know it!
The weather seems to have changed again today, the skies are grey & it's a bit gloomy out
 there......although I have to admit to liking the rain so it wouldn't bother me too
 much.....especially if it means I get to stay in & craft lol!
So for today I made another topper.....Like many of us I have stacks of papers that have come free with magazines, usually they don't get used but a while back I was having a root 
through some stash & came across some that were so lovely I just had to use them.......and
 this is what I made! Again, mostly dies were used.....all layered onto a piece of distressed
 paper & finished with a stamped sentiment & some pearls.......and again, it looks so much
 nicer IRL.......the colours are so rich & the flowers so pretty.
Rightio, another busy morning awaits if I want some crafty playtime later so thanks for
 calling & for any comments you might leave......see you tomorrow!
