I am back with another quick card - there have been a lot of those lately, I am creating these inbetween the New Release projects I am creating - I am looking forward to being able to show you some of those soon!!

This card is created using a Hero Arts image that has very kindly been lent to me by my dear friend Denise.  I do love chandeliers - they are so ambient and bring such a wonderful feel, although they can be considered Retro, they will always be elegant and timeless - and you have to love that!!

I have used some Pink Paislee patterned paper offcuts that have been gathering on my desk

Added an older Stampin' Up sentiment from the Warm Words set, some pleated DP and this divine trim, also from a RAK - thank you to my friends - you are all so good to me and help make my cards interesting!!

I have added a border strip using the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents, this has been cut with the Spellbinders grand Calibur.

Don't you just love to see those bits and pieces we collect on our desks, come together as something pretty - it makes my day when I know I am doing something to save the planet!  LOL!

This card is for the following challenges:
Hooked on Crafts - Anything Goes
I Did It Creations - Retro 70's
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes
Everybody Art Challenge - Anything Goes
