Simple Cards

I've been having a go at more simple styles this weekend and the Memory Box dies lend themselves to this well.  This is the Chloe stem.  I've added glitter to the "flower" but it doesn't show well in this pic.


I've used a mixture of TH stamps, hand made paper and rubons for this one.


ooh look - the doll's coming together!

Two very different cards but I love them both Carol. Their simplicity gives them elegance.
I also love the way your doll has her head tucked under her arm! She's going to be fantastic.

Those Memory Box dies are certainly very pretty especially the Chloe one. But I am bowled over by your doll. What a fantastic achievement.... lost for words!

Beautiful cards, so elegant in their simplicity. And the doll is so intriguing! :))

Fabulous cards Carol, they're both great, you can see the glitter on the flower when you click for enlargement. I especially love the butterfly aspire card but I think that is more of a personal colour choice thing. ;-)

Love that second card, Carol. Your doll makes me think of the Borg Queen - I know - I need a life, he, he. Can't wait to see what she becomes... x

THe cards are nice, but I agree with the other commenters.....that doll is FABULOUS! Hopefully her head will be on her neck soon!

Love your cards, Carol. The MB dies always look so elegant.

Your doll is looking stunning! I'm so glad you managed to sort out her hands.
