3D Paper Tole Lily Buckle Cards

Was a bit busy yesterday helping our 17yo son hand out his resumes.  Yes, the fun task of job hunting. If anyone in the Cairns area is looking for a keen, Year 12 school leaver please email me.  Keen to do most types of work except for Sales and Front Counter.  Thanks.

Okay, back to crafting.  I received a lovely Christmas card from Mandy at Craftmad and it was in the style of a buckle card (tutorial here at Craftmad).  I haven't done one in ages.  So dug out papers etc and created two.

I started with Grey Linen Textured Card for the base.  The front left I have added a silver metallic paper and this wonderful Lily 3D Paper Tole.  To the right inside section of the card I have added matching purple glitter paper.  I then finished the buckle off with a silver 'Best Wishes' sticker and added three purple bling.

The second card I have used another 3D Lily Paper Tole from the same sheet as above.
Then reveresed where I added the background papers too.

I received my prize from Amy at Flashback Friday Challenge.  (Sponsor:-  Mary Dawn of a . muse)
How exciting....I so receiving parcels in the mail.  Thanks so much Amy, I can't wait to have a play with these new stamps.
Everyone be sure to check out Flashback Friday on 6th January when the new challenge will be posted.  I will be there.

Well thats it for me today.  Hope you have a good one.  I am waiting to see what the weather is doing to see what I am doing.
