Freestyle Collage

Hi everyone, I do not know about you but I seem to collect all sorts of bits and pieces 'just in case' I need it when I go to make my next card project.  I have accumulated so many treasures that I am getting over run by them.  So I was very excited when I actually found a definition for my style of card that I want to share with you today.  It is 'Freestyle Collage' which means unrelated elements in a collection.  So get all you bits and bobs out, your dies, stamps and inks and go for it.

For my card I have used Memory Box dies 'Hollyhock Stem' and 'Woven Circle' with the Darkroom Door Stamp Set 'Simple Sayings'.   The sentiment I cut out using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities 'Fancy Framed Tags Two'. 

Come and browse around Bizzy Bec's online store here.  Bec has a great range of stamps, dies and all things that you will need to make some great projects, or if you need to collect some more bits and pieces for 'just in case'. 

Thank you for visiting.
