Hobby House Inspiration

Good Morning Everyone

The start of another week!  I hope you all had good weekends.  We spent the time looking for some new bedroom furniture in the sales.  We think we have narrowed it down so just need to do some measuring and work out what we need!

Anyway I am starting the week with some inspiration for the Hobby House blog.  If you haven't been onto the blog recently then do pop over.  Jill has sent over some photos from the CHA and they look great!  

Today I have continued with the Ribbon theme which is currently running on the challenge blog.  Here is my card:

I can't tell you how many times I took this photo!  I am still not happy with it but it was the best of a bad lot!!  The card in real life looks lovely.  I cut out a scalloped rectangle and used a selection of ribbons behind the shape.  I matted this up on a scalloped card base.  I added a ribbon down the side with a beautiful pearl ribbon slider.  The image is from Elisabeth Bell.  A full list of the products with a link to the shop are below:

Don't forget you still have plenty of time to join in with our ribbon challenge this month!  Oh and if anyone has any tips on how to photograph mostly white cards I would appreciate it!!  

I would like to enter this card into the Ribbon Challenge at Allsorts.

Have a great day!

Love and Hugs
