    This I got to say…… I LOVE THIS KIT!!!!!!!!
    I don't know what happened, but the pages and cards came so easy to me.
    Here's one of the cards I made with this kit:

    And here's how it came together:

    0monk_zpsf8f0256f.jpg
    I cut, for the base of my card, a piece of cream cardstock at 12 x 4.6.
    Scored it at 4.6 and folded it. Then I cut a piece of PP 4 x 4.6 and glued it to the right side like in the picture.

    I dabbed my finger into Gesso and swiped it to the edges of my front piece. Distressed the edges.

    2mon_zps10e91094.jpg
    I cut a piece of PP at 5.2 x 4.5 Distressed the edges.

    3mon_zps3acdedf5.jpg
    Glued it like in the picture. It is a little overlapping.

    Then I cut out this beautiful card/image from one of the cutout sheets that was in the October kit. Distressed the edges.

    And glued it like this.

    Then I cut out some banner like strips, (meassurements are in the picture) and distressed the edges. From a past kit I took a Prima resist canvas coer piece and added Ferro metal effect paint. My resin piece was broken (due to shipping) but that was okay.

    I layed my embellies down like this, to see what else it needed.

    As you can see, I added a strip of lace, undeeath my banners and I added some flowers. Then glued everything down.

    9monk_zps16309881.jpg
    I added some Iridescent medium to the center of one of the bigger flowers and some bling strips
    to the top and bottom of the card. The bling strip at the top, was cut in 2 pieces, otherwise the card could not be opened, but it looks like 1 strip of bling.

    and I called it DONE!

    I hope you liked this little tutorial.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
