Well, I had a good rummage around my old junk looking for an old Chinese vase, unfortunately I couldnt find anything!! What an amazing story, finding an old vase and suddenly £43 million richer! Imagine that... sigh!
Anyway, my card! I've done another Christmas card, just a couple more to do and I think I should be done for this year. I did this card for Kerry and the fabulous ladies over at the Ladybug Craft Challenge which this week is to use ribbon. I hadn't used fireside Nikki yet so decided that would be nice to use.
I wanted to try something a little different so I dusted off my old eyelet setter and set eyelets down the side of the card to tie the ribbon through. I scored down one side of the card and created a fold. I set myself a second challenge which was to use NO PURPLE OR PINK! and I managed it! I actually used orange (gulp). I also decorated the inside as well.
I'm not sure the flower works but i was fiddling around with it so much last night I decided to stop, and leave it!
I'm off now to paint boxes and photo books which I am doing as Christmas gifts, will post here for you to see when finished!
I am entering into the following challenges:
- Ladybug Crafts Challenge - Ribbon
- Craft Your Days Away - Christmas Trees
- Crazy 4 Challenges - A Christmas Card
- Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Sparkle and Shine
