House of Cards July Challenge. . . . . . Add a Bow (or more than one)


Good morning blogging chums. Hope you have been good since yesterday. 

Today's creation is my DT one for the House of Cards July Challenge which is Add a Bow. . . . . .or more than one if you fancy. Hope that you will join in or at least pop over and see what we, the DT, have come up with. There are some new DT members so it will be nice to see some different inspiration.

I actually made two cards and ummed and arrred over which to use but plumped for this one.
Will show the other in a future post.


Ingredients
6x6 cream card as base
First Edition Neroli 6x6 pad
The Striplet
X-Cut Extra Large Circle dies
Blue organza ribbon
Crafters Companion Vintage Floral Greetings sentiment
Docrafts blue and grey ink pad
Tumbled Glass DI pad
Blue bling
John's pearl


I saved the circle that I cut from the centre of the stripletted layer and used it on another card (coming to a Pond near you soon).


Hope this is the start of a fabulous week for you all. John's last week in Spain so spare a thought for him and also Wendy and Val who will be soooo sad to say goodbye to their pal.

Jackie D, you know how to build a gal up then bring her back to Earth again with a wallop lol! John would indeed be better on the TV than me. . . . . I have a face made for radio lol!

Saw the pics on the Paperterie blog of our lovely Hazel and Patricia with Sue Wilson. . . . . . . Sooo jealous of you girls.
Also, apologies if I'm tardy getting to some blogs. My mobile phone has gone for repair and I use it for lots of blogging activity as my tablet throws a hissy on some of the blogs I visit and won't let me comment. I have a spare phone, thankfully, but its got a smaller screen and can be temperamental so will have to fire up the laptop but probably not as frequently.

Don't forget to pop over to House of Cards folks.

Be good.

  2. Hello Ang
    This is a really pretty card. I like the way you have cut a circle out of the striplet background. The colour is lovely. Off to see the challenge cards and the photos.

  3. Hi Ang,

    Such a beautiful card, love the colours. You have been a very clever girl, love how you have made a frame out of the striplet, that must have taken some time and it looks like it all matches up no overlap? Brilliant.

    Love & Hugs

  15. Hi Ang. Great card, I love the turquoise/white combo and how you have cut the striplet. That looks like it took some time! Will have a go when I get back from Devon. Take care.

  16. Hi Ang,
    great card. I love what you have created with that striplet die. I keep seeing this die and am very tempted to buy it as all the cards I have seen created with one of these SW dies are fabulous.
    Can't really find time to play with my newest goodies I bought just before I took ill
    so I must find time soon, when my big load of family Birthdays are out of the way,
    and a few commissions.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  19. Oh dear Ang, I'm so sorry you feel you only have a face for radio I'm sure you would be great on TV especially demonstrating the striplet, well this card is a case in point is it not? I hope to sort something out for the challenge but I am so pushed for time as I shall be away again next week taking mum for a little holiday. Now I must get out in the garden before it rains again so I can fill up my brown bin for collection tomorrow. It's all go! best wishes Jackie
