Sympathy....

We are having problems with our internet at the moment Orange are telling us they are doing work to the lines...so one minute we are on and the next off sooo frustrating, we've just come back on again after being off since late last night.. So I apologise if I dont get around to your blogs to leave comments.

Anyway for my card today I have used another of my new Stampin Up stamp sets and this one is called 'Serene Silhouettes'.....  Using duster brushed and a couple of colour I created a little background the stamped the image with little birds on the branch on it.
Cutting out 2 separate aperture circles, slightly different sizes and them stamped on the top one using another stamp from the set.  
The little birds are from Memory box....sentiment is an old Stamps Unlimited one.

Entering this card into Brenda's stamping competition over at Floral Fantasies

  5. Hello Anne,

    It's such a pain when the tintrnet plays up, it's only then we realise how reliant we are on it.

    Where do I start with your card, my eye was initially drawn to the double aperture which really is so effective, then beautiful blend of colours, next the birds on the branch image and not forgetting the agapanthus across the bottom, so all in all hope you get the message......I love it.

    Thank you so much for creating such a lovely card to join in my blog celebration.
