WOYWW Part 2

Here is the anniversary card I've just finished.  I used a free digistamp from the wonderful Cora at  Thanks, Cora, for all your hard (and mostly unsung) work! xx

I was a bit too heavy-handed with the dark green distress ink but am happy with it, on the whole.  It's not as gloomy in real life.  The sentiment was PC generated.  I've started a notebook with scriptures and other sentiments that might come in useful.  I used sari ribbon that I've had for years - only cost pennies for miles of it, and they come in such delicious colours.  Although this looks very blue in the pic, it's actuallly a mix of the lighter blue and green on the card.  The silver in the ribbon and behind the tag lifts the whole thing.

Back to the baby cards now ...  xx

  4. Hi, I've just spent a lovely 10 minutes browsing your blog. Thank you for your visit to mine and your lovely comment. Love your anniversary card (men's cards are sooo difficult) and I often revert to sea themed/sailing ships for mens cards. I think your background colours work very well and love the sari ribbon. You must have had it a long time because round here it costs the earth in the only shop I have found it in. It's so beautiful though isn't it!
