Anna to case, I adore her layered style and gorgeous attention to detail. I tried to emulate the layout of her pretty card for the recycling challenge back in November, which used the Rose Budd collection in frosty tones of blue and lilac.

My mother-in-law picked up these flowers for me, from the Pound shop of all places! Aren't they beautiful? The on-trend burlap flowers hiding behind them are also a Pound shop find, while the paper and silver skeleton leaves are from my stash.
The letter stickers are American Crafts, and I've also added some doily and matt die-cuts made from Die'sire dies and Centura Pearl cardstock.
