Thank You Carrie

I came home to this gorgeous card from one of my favourite artists tonight...

My lovely friend Carrie made this card for me to congratulate me on my new home. And although it looks well in the photograph, it really doesn't do justice to the real life card!

It is so tactile I can't put it down. The front is the most lovely papers, inked and stamped and the details of the key and the leaves are all delicate metal embellishments. The back is embossed metal finished with alcohol inks, and the inside is lined with velvet. You just have to Touch this card!!!!!

Thanks Carrie - this is getting pride of place in the craft room.
