Industrial Chic Dove

Hi bloggers!  I just love the simplicity of this one!  Who says Industrial Chic has to be grungy!  The Industrial Chic Dove is a beautiful die with all the makings of a steampunk theme, but can easily be used to make truly elegant cards if desired.  If you like the look of this one, go ahead and leave a comment so you can be entered into the drawing to win it.  The last post for today will be at 3pm today.  It is definitely one of those last but not least posts though!  I hope to see you back here then! 

I just realised that I haven't told you when I will do the drawings for these.  How about I post the winners on August 16th!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, now this is one I do like. The IC Dove is lovely and could easily be used all year round. Interesting scribbled background, I don't think I have ever seen you do this before but it suits the card perfectly.
