Wrapped frames...

Happy Tuesday,

Today should see us on a cruise following our city break, this holiday was planned in January and we have been looking forward to this all  year.

Sue Wilson's Italian collection Decorative Frames dies
Pearl PVAWhite and Plum Seam binding
Heather & Milk Foundation Card



  1. Hi John,
    I Love the actual Card and The Fabulous Richness of The Colour Pallete, but personally I would have left the Ribbon off, just a personal thing.
    I hope your enjoying your holiday
    Hugs from Sam xx

  2. Hello John, love the opulent colour palette and layout, but same as Sam, the ribbon on this one does not do it for me, probably because it covers up the centre. Have a great cruise. Bx

  3. Nice card but I find hiding the sentiment under the ribbon very confusing. Love the colour and the crisp lines but like the others I feel it would have been better without the ribbon.
    Enjoy the high seas !


  4. Hi John. Beautiful card, I love the Italian die you have used, it is so pretty. This is one card in particular that I would love to see "in the flesh" as it is difficult to see how well the sentiment shows from the photos. I'm sure it works when you have it in front of you though. Hope the cruise is going well, I can't remember how far behind or in front you are but here today We will remember them. Take care.

  5. Lovy card-i guess you need to see it open to appreciate the stamped sentiment.


  6. Good morning John this is a beautiful card. I love the rich colour. Enjoy your cruise. I can't wait to go on another one I enjoyed it so much. Hugs Jackie

  7. Oh, pure inspiration John, I love those woven ribbons. I am assuming that the sentiment is on view inside? Enjoy your cruise.

  8. Hi John,

    Fabulous card, love the design and how you have done the ribbon and of course the fabulous colour.

    Love & Hugs

  9. Splice the mainbrace me hearty!
    Hope you're having an amazing time.
    I love when you do this woven thingy with the ribbon but not when it half covers the sentiment, sorry matey. Love the plum though.
    Have a great day.

  10. Really nice card and I like the woven technique but hard to see the sentiment in the photo.

    Hugs Alice xx

  11. move the sentiment and this card would be classy!

  12. Love the card, but would rather have seen the sentiment uncovered.
    Hope you are enjoying your holiday.

  13. Morning John,
    Great design, shame you covered the sentiment.

  14. Love the colour combo and the unusual way you have used the ribbons - can understand why folk are wondering about the sentiment but again I like the fact that it is a bit quirky and the sentiment is playing 'peek-a-boo' xx hope you are having a good time xx GailT xx

  15. Love the colours but shame the sentiment is not seen. Hope you and Ant are enjoying the cruise.

  16. I love the idea, the woven ribbon etc but like the others it looks as though it really obscures the sentiment so I'm finding it all a bit confusing Does the ribbon part "open" to reveal the sentiment...?

  17. Hello John, I love the woven effect with the ribbon - but as others have said it appears to be covering up the sentiment, is the sentiment on the inside of the card?
    I hope you enjoy your cruise, I'm so envious, take care, have fun, Brenda

  18. same colour purple as yesterday ,but this card appeals to me more ,love the woven ribbon .Laura O
