Hiya crafty friends,

Phew! Where did the week go?

Well, I'm sat here writing this post, blurry eyed and looking at the clock, which says 3 minutes past midnight. And looking very similar to this!

This is a great quote from the IndigoBlu Wild Meadow stamps set. Which I find quite inspiring. I used it as the main focal point of the card, as it is perfect to give a friend or loved one to show your support.

I LOVE this paisley embossing folder (and even better it is A4 size!!!), which I used on some patterned paper from the 'My Minds EYE Vintage Christmas' 6x6 pad. Which I then lightly sanded to give an aged look. The strips of paper are from the same pad and are off cuts from a project I made at Christmas (we crafters don't like to throw anything away, do we).

Clare Curds Crafts has an amazing array of ribbon. And this red satin ribbon is gorgeous!!
The stickers used are from the 'My Minds EYE Vintage Christmas' 12x12 sticker sheet. It's great when you can use Christmas stash at other times of the year too.

You know me...I have to add a tiny gem or pearl somewhere :)

I'm really pleased how the sanding of the embossed areas turned out on this paper.

For the final layer, I used the same embossing folder to emboss some pearlised paper.

As always, thanks for popping by and see you next week
