Your Hand...My first DT post for Swedish Housecrafts!!

Morning everyone!!!,

I'm soooooo excitedly typing in with my first Swedish Housecrafts DT post today and I went with using the stunning Pion Design- Images from the past- Your Hand sheet for my make. It has so many beautiful and romantic versions of the hands but I could not resist this one with it's stunning rose heart.

I teamed it up with some older Pion papers from my stash, Vintage Wedding. I love to layer up papers and make them pop by distressing the edges using one of my scissor blades and running it along the edge of the paper to 'fluff' it up like this.....

And tucked in just behind the hands is a gorgeous Sweet Cosy Love- So Wrapped Lovely Doo Hickey die cut. This die is just so beautiful and super for just adding a little more detail to your card. I love to add some twine to it and then pull the fibres apart so it looks all pretty and floofy woofy....

And to finish off the the little corners that looked a little lonely without embellishments I added 3 little adhesive pearls. It just lifts the plain-ness a little!!

So thats my uber excited Lou first swedish housecrafts post done!! oh my gosh I've been sitting on my hands for so long with this news!!!

I'm going to crack on with the day now and get a cuppa before I drop off the mini man to school. Have a wonderful day everyone! huge hugs Lou xxxx
