Saturday's Saunters

It's been a kind of leisurely day today, although I seem to have lost the morning as a result, lol. Anyway, I began the afternoon by selecting papers for my forthcoming CJ on Bubbly Funk. I think I may yet decide to change my title and will be putting it all together at the last moment. I really need a few other things in order to start doing my pages, so a little nose on the net later may be the trick, LOL.

So today I made a birthday card, which is well over due, but it's done now and I'm quite pleased with the result.

The ribbon is very pretty and kind of of folded over on each side. I bought it in Valencia last year and wish I'd bought more now, as you do, LOL.

The recipe for this card is as follows:-

Bazzill Orange monochromatic card
DCWV - Floral Prints paper
Colour Box Chalk ink - Amber Clay
Versafine Vintage Sepia
Hero Arts - LL087 - Correspondence Script set
Bazzill monochromatic Bahama Blue brads
and finally pretty ribbon from Valencia

Hope to be back tomorrow with my wk 4 of the 52Q's.
Thanks for popping by and taking the time to have a look. XX

Gorgeous Beth! Love the orange base and that ribbon really is very pretty, it's almost like a bias binding with the folded over edges.

You have made a lovely card there Beth! I love the way you have threaded the ribbon through and not pulled it tight XXX
