I said in my first post that I was a lover of quotes. I often use them inside a card but I think they can make quite an impact when the quote becomes the focal point of the card. So today I took one of my favourites and mounted it onto Spellbinders label 16.
I used ivory card from my stash and the same card for the quote which I cut with the Labels 16 and matted with mink coloured Bazzil cardstock. The backing paper and striped ribbon are Papermania Lincoln Linen. Flowers from WOC, leaf spray is a Woodware punch and the butterflies are Marianne Creatables. Once I took the photograph I realised that the Zva pearl flourish got lost in the background so I will replace it with one that has bigger pearls. The lace from my stash was a fabulous buy. I bought it some years ago from a shop that was closing down. The card held 27.6 metres and cost £1.50 - less than 6p a metre, reduced from 59p a metre. And we all know how much crafters love a bargain! Lol!
In the picture it looks as if I have matted the card lopsided, but it is just the angle I took the picture. I need some photography lessons!
Well that's all from me so have a great day everybody!
