Eau De Nil.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Yesterday was spent trying to get some card orders made, i don`t know about you but my mojo always goes awol when i need to make something specific but i did manage to make 2 and then i altered one i had already made to fit a 3rd order.
I just have 2 more to make, fingers crossed i can get them done later this week.
I am in work soon and it will be a long one today as we need to put our orders through and then its our promotion changeover so fingers crossed i will be home in time for Emmerdale ;D
So enough of my waffle and on to todays card which is one that has been ordered.

  31. Blinged up delightfully, Nic! A really lovely looking card. AND you have helped me to see something I had not seen before. Thank you! I have scalloped edged card blanks and when I have attempted to use them it never looks quite right. I see that you are not keeping your straight panels entirely within the scallops but are overlapping a little which gives a MUCH nicer and more professional looking edge so now I feel I can give it a go! Hugs, Lesley
