I love the bottoms....

...of these cards. I saw them a while ago on qvc (from
craftwork cards, I think!) and thought..."I can do those myself!" 
...So I did!! ....

I made this card for my mother-in-law as her birthday is coming up. 
I made the embossed background myself, with my helix board. (dead cheap from the works!)
I cut the label shape on my big shot, with my newish x-cut dies, and chalked
just inside the edges. The cat and cushion are decoupaged. 
Punched flowers, leaves and butterflies finished this card. 

I didn't make this for anyone in particular...
I bought some lovely stampin up stamps at a car boot sale a while ago and finally got round
to stampin and colourin a few...and this is one of those stamps!
I added a martha stewart punched border and embossed the background myself.
Thanks for looking!

both of your cards are gorgeous with beautiful images and fabulous layouts. The embossing works so well and I love the shaped bottoms!!
