I had some friends over to craft last Friday, 
We spent the day making Toppers
We used pretty vintage images,beautiful lace, 
Flowers leaves, ribbon, bows and embellishments
And Die-cut frames, which we cut up to add some extra detail.
This one has 2 ornate Die-cut frames, 
each frame is cut into 4 pieces.
One is arranged in the corners, and the other slipped in 
between to create a full frame.








I had such a lots of bits and bobs left over that I made a few more Saturday morning, before I tidied up.







The last 2 toppers also have a matching band,
when added to a simple background
They complete the card
This one is 8 by 8 inches

Thanks Roberta and Edel for a lovely day.

Thanks for stopping by today.
