What a slacker I’ve been! Thought it was high time I made a card for our current challenge!

I know ‘technically’ if you count the base this is 2 layers, however, being from the cardmaking school of ‘more is more’ this is as good as it’s gonna get lol I could be cheeky & say the sentiment is an ’embellishment’ Hmmm….this could be my last post if Kate decides to sack me….
Recipie (all PTI unless otherwise stated): Stamps – With Sympathy / Ink – Fresh Snow, Dark Chocolate & Vintage Cream / Card – Dark Chocolate, Vellum & Kraft / Other – SU! Linen Thread

Thanks to everyone who has joined in so far – the entries are all awesome!
