Thank you cards

Hi All!

Woohoo! It's the weekend! I bought some iced buns to celebrate...trying to limit myself to just the one but they are very moreish, they certainly wont last until Monday!

Anywhoo, I'm really here to share another card with you! I rarely do cards without an actual image on them. I think I'm just a bit scared on how to do the stamping background and its definitely not perfect, but I guess that's what practice is for!

I used the photo inspiration over on Our Creative Corner for the colour scheme and the glitter :)


The velvet ribbon misbehaved too - I was trying use my glue roller on it, but it kept pulling the velvet bits THROUGH the back!! I had to start on a new piece eventually and just double sticky tape it instead!



And here's a slightly more zoomed out version...I stuck the sentiment in one of the blue dots, it almost looks scalloped :)


Thanks for looking and hope you've all got a great weekend planned! xxxx

Your card has a 60's pop art feel to it. I am loving the vibrant colours you used, great for chasing away the winter blues. Thank you for entering our seeing double challenge at ooh La La creations this week and good luck.
