Thinking of you

Good afternoon and thank you for your visit.

First I would like to say Hello and a Big Welcome to Carol.  I'm so glad to have a new  blog friend.

I'd like to join in at The Snippets Playground Week 200.

 I've used all snippets of card for this one including the little gold heart which came out of my bits jar. The ribbon is from a box of small pieces of ribbon that I keep to use, mainly for iris folding.

The stamp is "Deer" by Stamps Away.  I used the back of the stamp with Pumice  Stone Distress ink to stamp a quick background for the deer.

I would also like to enter this card in the Alphabet Challenge blog  where the theme is R for Ribbon

Happy Crafting Everyone.

A stunning card - what a great idea to use the back of the stamp to stamp the background, it means the proportions are guaranteed to be right!

Great and very stylish card...would really suit the males we have to make for too!

Di said...

Fabulous card Barb - and what a great idea to use the back of the stamp for the background - as Jane says, it means the proportions will be just right. Who would have thought of that neat trick - not me for sure! And, as already said, I do love the addition of the torn strip - it's the little details that make all the difference isn't it.

BTW, I confiscated the bottles from the illicit party - hic!

Hugs
