Something Fancier...

Happy Thursday,

I thought today it was time for something a little fancier and bright.

Yesterday I used Spellbinders scalloped borders one to create the clean and simple lines however whilst it was on my craft desk I wanted to try cutting it in some new red mirror card I bought last week.  I was looking for gold and silver and picked up the wrong pack so thought I had better use it!  so this card started with the band across the centre.

The background is a sheet from my new 'Neroli' paper pack from First Edition ( I've since heard from Mrs Duck that this has been discontinued so if you want it get it now! lol)

The sentiment is from a set of three I recently ordered from Crafters Companion form their Sentimentals range, Click HERE to be connected.  All of the sentiments I have been using lately have come from these three ranges (hope that's enough information Anne O)

I die cut 2 ovals form Spellbinders classic ovals small and framed the sentiment with the twist cut form Spellbinders metal tags and accents.

A strip of ribbon is added to bring out the pale blue and soften the card a little with a bow and some of Wendy's hat pins.



  1. Gorgeous John. I'll have to get making more pins when I get home. See ya soon, xxxx

  2. WOW this sure stands out, elegance personified. Big word hope used in the correct context. Nevertheless this card is gorgeous.
