Elegant Ovals ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is using some very beautiful Anna Griffin papers and a lovely blue ribbon and in a style that maybe you wouldn't associate with me

This one is very vintage and I have woven the ribbon through each other on the bottom edge.

I have tied a double bow and added a gemstone to cover the knot and just tucked it in place under the sentiment.

The bas card is blue  but the sentiment tag is also from Anna Griffin and I must say it makes a very pretty card.

Maybe not quite my style but one that I am quite pleased with all the same

The only Spellbinders that I have used on this card is the Elegant Ovals and I have cut the largest #4  in the same blue as the base and #2 in cream and layered them together

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  19. Experimenting with styles outside your comfort zone shows a renewed spark of interest in your art (maybe triggered by the new exciting direction of your art career?:) ) I personally love Anna Griffin vintage and you've done her credit with your lovely card.

  20. Hi Christina
    As you say it's not your usual style. Although I like this card it's not my style either. To much ribbon for my liking. But hey ho we can't all like the same cards can we.
