The Jam that Marmalade...

Having a bit of a play around with some Sassafras Lass papers from the Sweet Marmalade range. Those who know me, know I generally shy away from 'bling', I'm not a fan, I do prefer to keep things pretty plain and simple, that's just the way I am. I have tried really hard to incorporate some in these cards, just a little question... do pearls count? or does it have to be really really sparkly? If pearls count, than I have finally done it! If not, well sorry, but sparkly bits and me are just not meant to be then.

These cards are not my usual style, I think they are very busy and I am a little stressed when I look at them, I feel like I am having a little sensory overload, but it's good to change things up every once in a while, isn't it?
