Handbags and Shoes - you can never have too many!!

Hello lovely crafters.

Today's selection of cards is a continuation of my quest to use up odd toppers and also make a dint in my (big) box of flowers.




The papers are a combo of First Edition and Craft Sensations.  The die cut frames are Sue Wilson Atlantic Ocean,  Swirly Square and Sweet Dixie Embroidery Frame , some Sue Wilson leaves and some MB butterflies.
Lots of gems, sequins and of course flowers.

Thank you for dropping in and any comments you leave - much appreciated.

Happy crafting
