Chinese Cushion

As I mentioned in my comment on the DCM site, I was slightly daunted by their sketch but ended up really enjoying this card. I love these little brocade cushions I picked up at the craft fayre, and accented then with a charm - as per one of their demo cards! Thought the word peace summed up the card nicely... and was looking for a different sentiment to put.

Fast mover -I haven't even started yet! The weather seems too nice to stay indoors, so I'm trying to do some gardening.

That cushion and the charms are just lovely. I love the birthday cards you've made too. And the bottle tops look fun.
