Victorian Sapphire - Blue and white

Hello friends

A blue and white crafty offering today.
I've used these papers a lot and it is from a Craftwork Cards
paper pad called Toile de Jouy.
The dies featured are Sapphire Plus Victorian Collection 
available from Create and Craft.


I cut the die twice, blue card and silver mirror card,
overlayed and offset slightly.


The matting is achieved with 5 x 7 Matting Basics.

And talking of my matting dies I've placed them in their sizes in A5 wallets
that close with a press stud closure, I'm going to see how this works for me.
Only fellow crafters understand the importance of these things!

Back to city job today - I'm not going to mention the commute...
oh look I just did! ;)

Take care friends.
