My First Elzybells!

Despite having been off work for the last 2 weeks, I haven't done anywhere near as much crafting (or blogging!) that I thought I would. So, over the next couple of days, I am going to try and sort out that situation before I have to go back to work on Monday!

Below is the first card I want to share with you today. It's my first ever Elzybells! They are SUCH fun to work with - I love 'em!


As you can see, for this card, I cut an aperture in the front of the card and stamped the actual image on the inside of the card blank. I then framed the hole with a rectangular Nestie. I really like this effect and so you may see it more often from me! The paper is another digi freebie and the image was watercoloured with pencils. I finished the card with adhesive gems, a layered up flower and some ribbon. I still think the card needs a little something else but at this point I'm not sure what...... any ideas?! Sentiment maybe?
