Black and Pink

look so fab together don't they! As I mentioned in one of my previous posts I treated myself to a Goody bag from Craftwork cards and this paper and image was included. It was one of those cards that just flowed and I have to admit to keep going back to have another you do that with some cards or is it just me!!

I think it is a little different from my usual style but I am very pleased with it. This is also my first attempt at a double was surprisingly easy....although I will have to watch Becca's video to remember again.
I was also experimenting with the new (to me) border die cut from Spellbinders. I am off to sunny UK on Tuesday to visit Mum and Naomi and Grant.

Card Supplies:
Card blank and pink paper from stash.
Backing paper and image from Craftwork cards.
Ribbon tied with help from Amazing Paper Grace blog.
Border cut on Bigshot using Spellbinders die.
Flourishes cut using Cheery Lynn die.
Roses from LOV.
Pearls from Buyology, Par, Cornwall.

Cheery Lynn Challenge 15 Pretty in Pink
Digi Doodle Shop's Best #95 Anything Goes.
Fab 'n' Funky #10 Try something new...tying double bow.

  8. Thanks Sandra for your comments. thought I'd reply ref flower. I run a running stitch all along the bottom of the ribbon strip and gather the the ribbon up. Then I catch it at both ends with a stitch and oversew underneath so it stays together. have a nice day
