Before we get started I just wanted to address something and to thank you to the lovely ladies who emailed me to let me know the comments on the blog were acting up yesterday.
Last Thursday infact I did my usual post for CE and all you lovely ladies left your comments as always but unfortunately I also received a very nasty comment aimed at me personally which was not pleasant so I deleted it, this week I decided to play with the settings and remove the ease for anonymous people to post such need to be haters for want of better words. It obviously caused other issues which I think I now have ironed out so thank you so much Pat and Patricia for letting me know you had tried to comment.
It is sad when some individuals who do not know you or your life think it is ok to be personal but of course I have so many more of you who are real and kind and very special to me each and every one of you and of course my son who sometimes helps me with the admin when he gets chance amongst doing his PhD and running a business and teaching at uni etc lol reminded me how easy it is to collect the IP address from the nasty comments to know who it is and to pass information onto the correct authorities etc. With that said I simply do no want this to upset any of us as it isn't worth our time.
So lets get started on this little gold and pink number shall we....
I really did not have a plan for this one I wanted to be very randam and so I started by getting a few mats and layers with Blossom Foundation card and using the lovely soft gold card too, I find it so much nicer than full on mirror card which is lovely for small edging and for die cuts but on a subtle print paper I think it can over power and steal the show somewhat lol...
As you see in this full picture I chose a couple of the papers from last months paper pack Vintage rose garden as I still had lots left to provide interest in the backdrop.
Here are the other mats and layers in varying sizes to work with too.
At this stage I lined up the mats ready for sticking down to see if all blended together nicely which It did. you can just see those feint little lotus shapes on the bottom of the mat with the concertina ribbon on.Once I was happy with the placement I went ahead and added foam to the back of some of the mats and not others or it would be wayyy too thick as you can see I use a lot of mats as I think it looks so much more professional than just a couple for some reason although that is a personal preference ting and of course if it needs to fit in an envelope is another issue along with P&P charges ( shall we not get started on that one lol)this post would be wayyyyy too long then wouldn't it folks hehe....
Finishing touches then consisted of some smaller wooden buttons and pearl half pieces to the centre of some of them and just plainly on some of the corners. I also found a button in my collection that looked like a clock so I added a pearl in the centre and popped that on too.
So that completed today's card, I hope you liked it and that you can let me know if you did today haha
Here is the full Image again
I hope you like it, it is a little different but still has my style , without too much inkiness i think.
Have a wonderful Thursday my lovlies and I will see you very soon .
Lots of love
