Papertake Challenge

>> Friday, 3 October 2008

I'm having a few crafting problems at the moment! Firstly, the card I ordered 2 1/2 weeks ago still hasn't arrived. Plus the double-sided tape I bought last week doesn't stick properly which means by the following morning my cards are in pieces again! I bought some horrible thick stuff from our local stationers which will do for now but I need some nice, slim, sticky, easy to tear tape. Recommendations please!

This card is for this weeks Papertake challenge. It was nice to make a slightly smaller card for this challenge and I kept it simple by using just one patterened paper (Basic Grey). Tilda is coloured with Prisma pencils which I love more and more everytime I use them. I cut the circles with my Nestabilities and then ran the pink one through the Cuttlebug. Lace, ribbon and charm are from my stash. The only thing I'm not entirely happy with is the sentiment which I stamped with burgandy ink but its not that clear.

Beautiful card, gorgeous Tilda and I love that bit of lace. Double side tape my preference is Sellotape, I've tried cheap stuff, dear stuff, easy peel stuff but at the end of day it may be more expensive but it saves my sanity.
