Basic Grey Loveliness

I have a load of cards that I have to make at the moment, a mixture of commissions, birthday cards and friendship swaps. At first I thought that I'd over-committed myself but amazingly my mojo was on fire last night and I ended up making 2 cards in just a couple of hours - almost unheard of for me!

The first card is a wallet which I made for a friend on the Docrafts forum who is sending me some beading stuff in exchange for some Rubber Romance stamped images.

As both the image and the paper are so bold, I kept this card really simple. I just layered some Basic Grey 'Scarletts Letter' paper onto black cardstock and added glass bead accents in the corners. 'Samantha' is coloured with ProMarkers and mounted onto more black card. The whole thing is finished with some thin black ribbon which ties the open edges of the wallet together.

I'll be back soon with the other card I made last night! Thanks for visiting!
