Thank You

Hello everyone. Welcome to my room . Hope  you have had a pleasant day.  The sun was a no show today in Adealaide again  and it is going to be a very cold night. Roll on warmer Spring weather.
Still good crafting times though.
So to todays card . This one is taken from an example in our new catalogue .

I really thought that this was a clever way to showcase a whole stamp set . Thank You Kindly was the set .I have used Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and  Baja Breeze ink.
The leaves  from set Pocket Silhouettes.
Just a tip ..I used the 1/4" circle punch to make a half circle to sit the ribbon over

I have used this before in thicker ribbon as it does make it easier / flatter when folding ribbon over and adhering the panel onto card front.

In this case I have used white taffeta ribbon and I like the way it seems a neater finish for me.
I made a separate bow and fixed onto ribbon strip.
Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiments was a necessity.
Hope you enjoyed your visit tonight and the card . Thank you for calling in .
Catch you again soon , cheers Shirley-Anne
