Card with tags in place - not to keen on the tags so I will probably change them!
Card without tags
And I made a little stand for the back so that the card can stand up.
The paper/card is by American Crafts and I have had it for ages. I bought it because I liked the pattern - but its a bit too large for a card. The ribbons are from my local market and so is the button.
So I don't think I did too bad - maybe next time I will use a smaller patterned paper - which I think will give it more impact.
UPDATE ON CARDS
Just to let you know the lady who asked for the card with MEL on the front absolutely loved it - my friend rang me this morning to let me know. Also the little house card that I did the other day, my friend 'bought' it off me to give to one of her friends who has just moved in to a new house and she was delighted with it and she couldnt believe that it was hand made (blush)!! So I am very happy!
