why I dont use freebie papers



This is for friday sketchers and will be stripped down and recycled within a few hours. A classic example of why I don't use magazine papers. Sketch is fab, love the flower and tilda is sweet but this freebie paper just hasnt taken the bookbinding or stick glue very well and looks dirty.

Tilda is coloured with light magenta, violet, burnt umber, walnut, phtalo blue with middle purple pink and juniper for the tulips. Forever flowers blossom and Leone Em leaf sprays. The nested shape is my own and cut with scal & the cricut.

Your card is very pretty, I'm not that keen on freebie papers either, they usually quite flimsy and too shiny
