Be.you.tiful

Hi there!

A peaceful Sunday morning here in Abu Dhabi!

I have a card to share for the cas-ual fridays challenge : Over the edge!





While I was adding the sequins (which are such a big trend at the moment) , I thought back to the days I started making cards... ages ago when sequins were about the only embellishment I had in my limited stash! Never did I think it would be so 'big' 10 years later!

I used another age old item... rafia... to thread through the punched holes, and left it hanging over the edge...

My sentiment shared... I little milestone regarding my sentiment... this is #500!!!
I can't believe it!
Enjoy ... hope you can use it!



Thanks for looking!

Hi Hannelie, I don't know what's happened but I can't see your card ... just grey no-entry signs instead of pictures. From the comments, everyone else can see/has seen it, so it might be something here ... I'll pop back tomorrow and see if it's righted itself! Anita :)
