Jeanne has chosen the most beautiful photo inspiration for us to play with over the next two weeks and asks that we be inspired by the colours of the photo, use VIOLETS and GREEN and add RIBBON and a FLOWER.
I had a special 40th Birthday card to make for my lovely friend who will be turning 40 on Tuesday. I used some Bridal White Satin Ribbon to make a wide ruffled piece and then added some Purple Saddle Stitch Grosgrain along the bottom edge. I added some beautiful two-tone dark lilac Cherry Blossom flowers and a sweet white Gardenia flower. The green olive faux silk ribbon gives the impression of leaves and I couldn't resist some loopy purple button twine and beautiful white leaf stick pins.
The gorgeous 'My Heart' stamp set is one of my favourites and is by Waltzingmouse and is stamped in shades of violet and green and I added some sweet lilac gems which I had shaped into the number 40.
