A second sample for Sarah


Hi everyone, hope the weather isnt as cold with you as it was with us last night, and I gather from my hubby its just as bad this morning, hes just been and posted a parcel for me and  he said that the cold stung his face, Im not looking forward to my trip out later, it does seem strange as the sun is out, but obviously not doing much to warm things up.
My second sample for Sarah today is another of the designs from her new cd Yesteryears Floral Vase Edition, this one is Lillies, Ive printed the sheet of toppers and cut out two small ones and one large one, and mounted them onto gold mirri board, Ive also printed a greeting from my computer and mounted this also onto a piece of gold mirri board.
My base card is a piece of A4 ice-pearl pearlescent card, and Ive printed the beautiful background design straight onto the card, then folded it half into a A5 size card, then across the middle Ive put a piece of pearlescent vellum and used my Martha Stewart border punch along both the edges to create a strip which has been stuck across the middle with a wide organza ribbon bound along the centre. And my three mounted pictures have been positioned across the middle on top of it. The greeting was then positioned at the bottom on the right handside.

Good afternoon Shirly

This card is extremely elegant and could be used for so many occasions.

Very cold here as well and when my hubby came in from the animals a while back said exactly the same as yours about it stining his hands and face.

The snow looks very pretty when it arrives, but do wish it would clear up adn go away now.
