Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Twigs not leaves ...

Hi Everybody,

I thought that for this card I would use twigs to surround the flowers instead of leaves and I think it looks really pretty.

I used some light brown card stock that I already had and it is quite a strong card at 300 gsm.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and I have added some sparkle to the petals.

The wide satin ribbon is from Mei Flower and is tied in a single bow.

The pearl and Diamante centre is from The Hobby House

I have added just a small strip of   Diamante along the side of the sentiment as it lacked a little something for me.

The sentiment has been heat embossed in silver and the card is in the Hinged Card style
