Luv U ....

.... I've used a couple of challenges to make this card:




Stamps:  Die-namics - Pretty Pocket, Vanity License
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Soft Suede; Versamark
Dies: Die-namics - Vanity License Die; Spellbinders - Scalloped Circles Sm (S4-125) # 4, Circles Sm (S4-116) # 5
Accessories:  Martha Stewart Punch; SU - Soft Suede Card, Very Vanilla Card,  Bridesmaid Paper (Very Vanilla) (discontinued); Perfect Pearls, Ribbon from stash


I really like the inspiration photo for this week's Ribbon Reel challenge - it's so feminine, so elegant.  Just like my Mum and this is her birthday card.  I think the soft neutral palette with just a hint of teal and pink is gorgeous.  I made the card base from some SU card.  For the damask finish, I used SU Bridesmaid paper (sadly now discontinued).  I cut a panel of soft suede card, punched a lace border and stamped some flowers and leaves in Versamark and added Perfect Pearls to give subtle colour.  Next I made an arch from Very Vanilla card, adding a subtle edge with my SU pen.  I cut a couple of circles using my Spellbinders and layered vines, flowers and a star from the Pretty Pocket set.  They had been stamped and embossed on Very Vanilla card and coloured with Perfect Pearls.  I finished off with this fabulous license plate die and a sentiment "Luv U".

It took me ages to get a decent photo of the card - it was so grey earlier this morning, but the sun is out now and view from my window is fab!  But goodness me, it was cold this morning!  We woke to temperatures of -4°C (25°F) this morning and a heavy frost.  The cold has come early - perhaps this is a sign of things to come!  That's all for now - see you tomorrow.
