Corners rounded using Xcut large cutter.
Backing paper is from Debbie Moore designs  'Art Deco Rome' CD rom
which matched perfectly this Kanban Topper 'Bella Fiori - Rosanna Delights
'Birthday' cut using Britania Dies.
Sissors charm, old lace and oval topper in my stash, along with cotton for stitching.

  28. Two lovely makes here today. I love the reverse of the tag. Thank you for your visit today. The fuzzy edge to my photos was done just by fading them in Roxio Photosuite. Having done a load more sorting today, I am hoping to get some real crafting done on my desk tomorrow, even if it is just snippets. I was hoping to get some more silver birch but it is so wet at the moment and it does not look too hopeful for the rest of the week. Have a good week. xx Maggie #2
