Flowers and bows

Well this dreadful weather is still with us, rain lashing down, lightning flashing and thunder rolling around. The rain and wind is really scary, what with flooding and fallen trees.

Well todays card was made some time ago and I did not notice when the photo was taken the the flower in the middle ot the bow had slipped.  I fixed it before it was given to a friend for her mother's birthday.

I have used
Creative Expressions Foundation Card in Cream, taupe and black
Kanban embossed in gold card
Kanban sentiment and flower on bow
The dies were designed by Sue Wilson for Spellbinders and are called Lattice Motifs and Lattice Accents
The black and white ribbon and gold ribbon were again Creative Expressions
Black pearls from Crystal Stickers
Peach Flowers from Bit Box. I tend to pick embelishments up as I wander round the shops.

I tend to look at cards posted by crafty friends on my IPad first thing in the morning but need to be on my computer to download the photographs of cards.  So now I have used my brainbox and will prepare my blog at night, sleep on it, and post in the morning,  that gives me time to make any alterations that I think are required.

Stay Safe

  6. Hi Wilma,
    well this a fantastic card, soooooooo pretty. As Patricia said you make excellent cards, and you are welcome to use any of my ideas. I bet if you emailed this to Sue Wilson she would love to see it. She loves to view cards made, especially one with her design dies.
