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.
