Getting sentimental

Hello lovely people,

I hope you are all having lovely weekends and doing things you enjoy :-)

I was happily crafting away most of yesterday and had a most productive day.
We then went out to our favourite local Indian restaurant with friends in the evening and tried out a couple of new dishes on the menu which were absolutely gorgeous :-)

I think I shall be getting stuck into Christmas cards today but the card I have to share with you today is harking back to Summer I think!
I've used lots of gorgeous goodies from The Ribbon Girlincluding a beautiful chipboard piece as the focal point for my card

The chipboard lettering looks lovely just as it comes but I did pop a couple of coats of white acrylic paint on top of this one; I just sponged it on with a small piece of Cut-n-Dry foam.

The chipboard lends itself beautifully to a shabby chic style so I added lots of pretty embellies and just a hint of cheesecloth.

A gorgeous card Kat, and you've used some of my favourite papers (of course I have a 'few' favourites) too. That chipboard sentiment makes a perfect focal point. I have quite the bit of catching up to do after my trip, so I will be by again during the week :) xx

awww Kat - this is absolutely gorgeous. The colours you have put together look so striking and I love your pretty embellishments. The curled corners are a genius design idea and everything about this is just perfect, it looks wonderful. You really are super clever.

For me, it is the beautiful delicate lacy edging that really contrasts with the simple chipboard sentiment and gives this card zing. Love Mum x
