Is that really made by me?!!

Today I have a very different style of card for you and my second one as Guest Designer for the Quixotic Inspiration blog.  Usually I like my bright, playful cards, but I do like to experiment so my style doesn't become too samey.  This card is the complete opposite to what I make - elegant!  I was inspired by these gorgeous papers by Websters Pages (you can buy from Quixotic Paperie here) and a gorgeous sentiment stamp by Stempelglede (you can buy here) and here it is...

 

Sooo, what do you think?!!  It's so different for me - not sure if I've done those papers justice!!  The sentiment says "Magic is believing in yourself.  If you can do that, you can make anything happen."  I'm getting so soppy in my old age, lol!!  I have so many friends I would love to send this to so I'll have to make some more!

Unfortunately my card doesn't qualify for this month's challenge over at the Quixotic Inspiration blog to make a card that's NOT square or rectangle (and you all know how much I luuurve my squares!).

Enjoy the week and see you tomorrow for Totally Ladybug Tuesday!

Stamps: Stempelglede Magic sentiment (you can buy here)
Mediums: Distress Antique Linen ink

I love the sentiment - and the vintage /shabby chic style of the card - but is that a bird i spy .. i once went on a home visit and the patient had a Peacock!! It kept screeching and i kept jumping out of my skin.. i was scared to walk past it!
