.... it's getting close to the challenge deadline for the current Ribbon Reel - RR9 challenge - but I've made it!!
The inspiration photo for this challenge has been picked by my Blog Buddie Pauline. She wants us to make a card or project inspired by the photo using plum, green, grey/silver plus any neutral, and as we're on the Ribbon Reel challenge, some ribbon too!
I love the simple elegance of the photo and the soft, subtle colours - so decided to make a sympathy card - I need some for my stock. I stamped the main image onto plain white card and coloured it with Promarkers. I cut the image and mat layer out using my nesties. While in the die I added some colour with my distress inks to the image. I attached the silver ribbon directly to the card and, in my stash, I found a lovely green ribbon to make a small bow for the flowers. Finally I die cut a fancy tag and attached the sentiment. Simple and elegant.

I'm having a lovely day - the weather has turned out to be quite reasonable!! I'm on my own - Jonathan is out at a photo shoot and Kathryn out at a Fun Day at our local Cricket club. So I've been able to play!!! I've been watching Create and Craft TV - I do like the new Kanban steampunk card and toppers - they look wonderful, but I've not bought them. And I'm busy making invitations for Kathryn's birthday party. I've been playing with designs - and I've finally settled on the layout I'm going to use - now all I have to do is make them. I'll share them with you soon.
