I don't know why - maybe it's because of my interest in all things medieval - but I seem to be most comfortable creating with this theme. Here is my latest card, which I've made for my sister-in-law's birthday.
I scored and folded an A4 sheet of black card, onto which I layered two different patterns of paper from the Robert Adams Medieval CD; the rubber stamp is an unknown I picked up from ebay, stamped in black versafine onto white card and layered up onto silver mirri. The metal embellishment was a pie case dry embossed using a Dreamweaver stencil. I love it, I hope Ginnie does! It's quite a simple card, but looks very sophisticated.
