Pale Turquoise

Hi Everybody,

As I am writing this post the rain is pouring down and I can hear the pattering of the drops on the window that is above me in my craft room.

We were going to do a video but at the moment the noise is too much so hence I write this post instead.

Todays card is a lovely pale shade and it is much prettier in real life.  It is made into a Hinged Card and this is my favorite way to make cards at the moment

It creates a card that is neither  too big nor too small and because I used Spellbinders matting basics I know the lines will be perfect every time.

The filigree panel has been added with foam pads to make it stand out from the background and that gives depth to the card.

The little sentiment is from  JustRite Stampers  and it has been heat embossed in silver.

The ribbons is from Mei  Flower and is some I bought at the last craft show... and the next GNPE in Harogate is in October ... will you be going ? I will

I have wrapped the ribbon around the panel and glued a Dazzler  from Creative Studios  over the knot.

The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and the card is finished with some strips of self adhesive pearls from Want2Scrap

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
