Gorgeous in Green ...

Hi Everybody,

Another offering with digital papers from the Floriography CD  and this one has large daisies on the paper.

For this card I have matted and layered it with a paler shade of green but cut the sentiment in a darker shade so that it stands out more.

Along the bottom I have used a pretty technique with ribbon and there is a video tutorial to show you what I did.

Ruffled Ribbon is a really old video tutorial that I did so my apologies if it looks a little dated ... but the effect is still a pretty addition to your cards.

To the ribbon I have added in a row or pearls and used one of the Mother of Pearl Buttons from Spellbinders called Grandmothers Buttons.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  6. Good Morning Christina :) Glad you're home safe and sound and had such a wonderful time this weekend. While I have seen Downton Abbey a few times and thought it was a wonderful show, I really have no reason why I wasn't an avid follower. If it comes on Netflix or Hulu, I will binge watch. I always love Maggie Smith in just about anything she does. Shout out to Jean for winning a beautiful Christina Card! Yay You!! I know you will enjoy and treasure it for a long time. Today's card is just lovely, Christina cheery. Thank you for sharing. Enjoy a glorious day! Big Hugs.

  7. Hi Christina
    A lovely card. Your tutorial might be old, but it is just as informative, and very easy to follow.
