Hi everyone - hope you're all having a lovely day! (It's been raining buckets in West Yorkshire)!
This is for a friend's Ruby Wedding - I stamped the Penny Black "Good Cheer" image in Versafine Smokey Grey, then heat embossed it before colouring. No Copics were harmed in the making of this card as I used watercolour pencils instead!
The background paper is from the K&Co Madeline collection, and I have also used the same papers for some of the flowers. I have used Bazzill Bling for the base card, Bazzill Basics for the layers and the leaves, and some red velvet ribbon (which I've had for ages and I nearly cried when I cut into it as I love it so much - you know the feeling don't you?)!
Punches used are Woodware grass, EK Success retro flowers and Martha Stewart doily lace border. Oh yes - almost forgot - the gems are those lovely little Dew Drops in a cute little bottle. Added a CB heart stamped with a "40", Anniversary stamp from Hero Arts, Glamour Dust here & there, and that's it!
Thanks so much for looking - Hugs, Sylvia xx

Beautiful the flowers you've made and the way you've used them.
Know just what you mean about loving something so much you hate to use it....I have scrapbook papers like that.....just want to look and feel...cutting them up would be a crime!!!
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Hello Sylvia

Fabtastic card, and so perfect for the occasion.
I love your detail especially the flowers.


Max said...

Super card and yes, I know exactly what you mean about cutting into treasured ribbons and papers. The thing is ... once the 'dirty deed' is done, it always looks so much better on the card than in the drawer, but that doesn't stop me being reluctant to make that first cut.
