Two sympathy cards and an anniversary card ... Updated with new photos!

... all the images and backing papers are from Joanna Sheen's CD's. The two sympathy cards are from Eastern Treasures and the other is obviously from the Messy Rabbit CD.

Finished off with a Martha Stewart punch border and 3 black gems. The Messy Rabbit one was made a while ago. It is A5 gatefold with some ladybirds and foam carrots and a lovely ceramic pot. The image has been decoupaged. Re-took these this morning ... light still not ideal. Hope you like them and thanks for looking.
