Finally got round to making A card tonight. I was late at getting my craft stuff out and its now 10.30 - need to get to bed as I have the dentist first thing in the morning after I drop the kids at school. Caitlyn also has to be at school a bit earlier as she is going to one of the main high schools to see the musical BUGSY MALONE.

I like this card - but I am not happy with the thanks bit on the ribbon. I stamped it using a brown inkpad but it has turned a red colour. The thing is it worked!!!! I didnt think that it would - only gutted now as its the wrong colour.

The papers are from my prize stash and they are the Bohemian Sarapapers which are lush, lush, lush - it was very hard to cut them (but I cant sit and stroke them forever can I).

The flower was made using some card art shapes, that I covered with paper and inked the edges then added the brad. The 'stem' of the flower was made using some paper string that I got at IKEA years ago.
