Spring.........

Peeloffs............ a sensitive subject..... they're like Marmite you either love them or hate them.... which camp are you in?.... Vote now! I'm saying nothing! A friend....... made me a generous gift of some fabulous holographic butterflies so here they are! Spring is the theme over on the LTDO challenge this week so I thing this floral offering might fit the bill. The flower is Build a Pansy from Papermania.The greeting is Penny Black.

OMG a peel off.... DB beware. Stunning card is that flourish on the background a stamp?

Hels Sheridan said...

I generally don't like peel offs if they are just plonked onto a card and nothing else is done with them...however, when they are used in a special way...I guess that they are just like a stamped and gold/silver embossed image...and .. I loooove this card...that Poppy is fabby x

It doesn't look like a peel off if that's a good thing or bad thing! Love the layout of the card and the flower looks great!

Linda Elbourne said...

I am in the camp that says ... peel offs are Ok when used well and you have used it well ... in fact ... very well ... a lovely card!

Generally I don't like peel-offs, but I have to admit that you have done this one justice and made an absolutely fabulous card, I especially like the red flower, how did you make it?

Have to confess I have loads of the damn things from a past craft life! Lol! Beautiful card Gail, love the paper pleating & everything else too!

Crafty Dawn said...

I have this stamp by PM and it's lovely I must use it more! I need that paper it's divine you haven't said where it's from although I am sure I have seen it somewhere I am a defo

NO to peeloffs

Having said that, I have seen some people work wonders with them but I just associate them with when I first started out I used them as sentiments on cards amounst other things and I didn't like them they but as I was so new I didn't know what other options there were I now have stampinf and when I can get my printer and comp talking there is always Computer generated lol

Love Dawn xx
