Here's a close up of the sentiment - you can see the subtle patterns in the papers too!
Jonathan just loves music and he'll get the reference in the sentiment really quickly - here's The Drifters singing Sweets for my Sweet!
I was on a roll last night and I made another card for this Blog Party - this time I got inspiration from the current Case Study challenge - CSC#73, where the muse for January is Jen Rzasa and I used bright colours and a sweet butterfly for Flutter by Wednesdays - FBW185.
I really like this card by Jen, and I've kept to the layout. I simply changed the backing papers, the sentiment and the shape of the die cuts. I'm not sure who this is for! Although I may send it to another of my personal "sweet things" - my darling son Ben! :) I have added a touch of distress ink to the edges of the card and the top - like a vignette to focus the attention to the centre of the card.
