Floral Anniversary

Hi all,

I have something of a completely different style for me to show you today, over the last few weeks I have been spending a lot of time on/completely addicted to lol!! yes you guessed it ------ Pintrest. I have been really inspired by the cards there that don't have images on them and use lots of embossing folders and very sort of stampin up style types.

So Sat night when hubby decided to tell me he needed an anniversary card for Sunday morning, which meant it needed to be something quick & simple. I had seen a lovely card on Pintrest and I decided to use it for my inspiration/ well totally cased it really!!. You can find the original card HERE, and here is the one I made.

Now I have to admit mine doesn't look half as good as the original, obviously my supplies were a bit different but when I realised I had the same papers I couldn't help but copy that bit exactly. I also don't know if the original was bigger than mine as I couldn't fit the flowers along the ribbon as there wasn't enough space. So I popped a couple in the corner, which I think look a bit c**p now - never mind.

I definately enjoyed doing it and it was a lot quicker than having to colour an image in and perfect for someone who is not into cute (my normal style) so I think I will be trying some more out. Although probably be doing a lot of casing until I sort of find my own style within that style lol!!

Thanks for popping by my blog today, hope to be back tomorrow with some new samples. I have had a parcel delivered full of gorgeous Trimcraft Christmas goodies to play with.
