Fabulous Fashion for a Fab Friend!!


Hi all I had a great night last night. We went out for a meal and few drinks to celebrate Gail and My 31st Birthdays. It was Gail’s birthday on the 7th and it’s mine on the 18th so we decided to have a combined celebration.


I made her a card and necklace and gave these to her last night. She loved them both.


This is the card I made using Katy Sue Designs and House of Zandra Fabulous Fashion CD.

This is the first card I have made using this cd. I have been wanting it for a while but eventually got it at The Great Northern Papercrafts Show last Sunday. I am really pleased with the results and Gail and the rest of the girls thought it was Fab too which I was pleased about.

I used a variety of beads from my stash for this one, including bicones in various sizes, round glass pearls, Glass Beads and Crackle Class Beads. Also the findings are a ball head pin in gold, Gold Leaf Toggle Clasp, Gold 7 Strand Nylon Coated Wire, Crimp Beads and Collets.

Stunning card Rachel. Love the image and how you coloured it and layered the skirt. The papers coordinate compliment the card. Thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Creations and we hope to see you again soon. Meighan DT
