Sometimes you don't have to spend a fortune



The other day I was in my favourite paper crafts shop and I came across two of the nicest papers I have seen in a long time. I knew I had to get them as they had parasals and lanterns, two things I absolutely love. I am challenging myself to make cards that don't cost much and I am happy to say that the cards that I made out of this paper have cost me about $1.50 or even less, all I have done is used the paper as the main embellishment, I have cut out the lantern's and parasals and paper pieced them using self adhesive dimensional foam. I have purchased quite a lot of this paper and look forward to using them in future creations.

The Challenges I have included-
ATC'S and cards with attitude-Anything goes
Fat pages & cards-Anything goes
Inspire me Fridays-Anything goes
Simply create-Anything goes
Challenges 4 everybody-Anything goes
Totally stampalicious-Anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great week :)
