Card No. 085

Evenin' all!

Sorry going back a good few years there to the day's of Dixon of Dock Green, if anyone remembers it? Showing my age now, lol.

I really struggled with this card, I bought the papers as a download from Aimee Asher, and really like the set individually, but found putting them together something else!!!!!!!!  Anyway, I eventually settled for this combination set off with gold mirri card, which as usual hasn't photographed well.  The image is from Whiff of Joy, the holly was hand drawn and cut, then edged with a white pen and some glitter.  I wasn't happy with the circular background that my lady is set against, as it was too plain, so added some stamped snowflakes, which I think improves it a bit.  Don't be afraid to let me know what you think, even if you think it's rubbish!!

Have a great weekend - what's left of it.

  1. I love those holly papers and the hand cut holly leaves are lovely too - I think the whole layout looks great - I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds mirri card a pain to photograph. Don't put yourself down, this card is fab! Hugs, Claire x

  2. Hi Judi,
    This is a beautiful card. I love the papers and the gorgeous image. Great card.
    Old? I can remember Dixon's first outing in the film "The Blue Lamp" Haha.
