Flower Card


Here's another quick card I made at the crop on Saturday
The image is by Hero Arts, coloured with copics. I used a cuttlebug border folder and scattered some gems around. The bow is a ribbon bought from Big Lots - I really like big ribbons at the moment, I used to look at narrow little ribbons for cards, but I am really into the impact that huge bows make.
No crafting for a couple of days, we have been to see friends from the UK who are staying on Anna Marie Island. The weather was scorching and we went onto the beach, where there was a stiff breeze to mask the effects of the sun, so we looked a funny bunch when we went out to dinner, various shades of pink. I had taken a tomato coloured top to wear, unfortunate choice in the circumstances, but hey, at least it matched my nose

as you can see..............................

  3. Hi Enfys

    Beautiful card as always. That ribbon is just fantastic.

    I love all the details.

    I too love ribbons and what I use keeps varying in widths and textures depending on my whim at the time.

    Hope you had a great time with your friends.

    Love Jules xx
