D'Arcy's Diaries card...

I saw on the D'Arcy's Diaries blog that the latest copy of Complete Cardmaking came with oodles of gorgeous D'Arcy's Diaries images and loads of other cute ones from other companies so it is well worth buying.

I have used my new fave colour combination of the moment of pale blue and peachy pink. I love the shading on the D'Arcy's Diaries, it makes them lovely and easy to colour. I've added a tag behind the image and kept the embellishment simple...

A sideshot...

  4. Fabulous card and such a great image. Love the soft colours and those papers are lush.

    The image reminded me of one of my junior school teachers she was very tall with a huge bust and always stood with her arms folded underneath it, I'm sure she could breathe fire from her nostrils lol xxx
