All Bundled Up card (Crafts & Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi everyone,

I made a uniquely shaped card today and added just a few embellishments hehe. I used a gorgeous freebie image from Crafts and Me, it is still available so you can click on their name and it will take you to the website to check out all their other beautiful images or to get this freebie click Crafts and Me for their blog. I printed it twice so I could 3D the penguins, I have a close up below.

I have also used a teal pearl flourish from Flourish with a Bling. I added a little bit of white texture paint so they were more "shabby". Everything at FWAB is half price this month (see below for more details or click on the name). These gorgeous papers are from a Bo Bunny range quite some time ago but I was lucky enough to find some more of it at a local craft show and snapped it up. 

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout December, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage!
