Wishes for a friend

This special card was made for a friend who's a long way from me in distance, but close to my heart.  Her emails bring bright lights into my inbox.

Couldn't recall where I'd seen this idea of ribbons crossing the card like a noticeboard until I was surfing the other night and came across it again.  The original is SO MUCH better than mine (check it out here), but I like the idea, even though maybe this version could have more oomph.  Anyway, the DP is from My Memories (and the other side is so boring!!)(well, I think so) and the extra mat just had to be a cheery yellow.  The Kaiser flowers are pinned over printed ones on the paper.  The ribbon is from my busy room..... and I thought it was sitting fairly tight on the card til I saw this photo.  The sentiment was something I won in the Splitcoasters Raffle last year and have been looking for an excuse to use on something special.

I'm going to try the ribbon criss-cross thingy again with wider ribbon next time, but I still like my first attempt and hope my friend did too.


  1. I think your first attempt is fabulous! Love the colours you chose - not used to seeing you use pastels!!!

  2. This is so pretty, Zoe! I love the gold, cream and blue, great card!

  3. Love this card! I'd be feeling like a very special friend if I got this in the mail :-).


  4. Love this! I think the technique with the ribbon is so cool and well, I love the colors a lot! Very soft, elegant and classy! And there's blingy-ness (yes, that's a word) that makes me smile!!!!

  5. You bet I did like it... in fact, I LOVE it!!! It is even more wonderful in person, and something I will treasure always!!! I think that ribbon technique is beautiful and must try it myself.

    Love and hugs to you across the many miles, dear girl.


  6. I love it!! Fun elements, colors, and those CUTE flowers are a perfect touch!! Definitely makes me smile!! Enjoy your day and getting back into a routine with being done with Holidays!! LOL!


love to know what you think.......
