Happy Tuesday everyone!
I know it's almost a week since I posted anything on here so let me first apologize for that. Having a hard time getting organized after the vacation.....not really a good excuse but it's the only one I have.
I would like to welcome my new followers to my blog and say a huge thank you to my followers who leave comments on here....I love to read what you have to say, so keep them coming! This week I'd like to welcome Brenda from Brenda is full of scrap (love that name), she has some really cute scrapbook pages so you may want to check those out, and zinzia's blog with some really pretty cards.....stop on by you won't be disappointed, and of course Michelle from Enchanted Inspirations who has gorgeous images and is one of Midnight Madness sponsors right now. Michelle has a lovely blog candy going on at the moment for one of her adorable prints.... go check it out.
This weeks card is a little different for me, don't you think? Not sure if I really like what I made but still haven't decided...one of those times where I think to myself....should I have put this together this way? Anyway, I'm sure you will let me know if you are unsure about it too.....don't worry I won't be offended!
Well I have had this beautiful filigree gate from Lindy's gang just begging to be used, I had previously embossed it using Lindy's gang embossing powder but just couldn't figure out how to place it...until I saw MMSC12. I had fun placing all the little wires and curling them, then sticking on all the little flowers and adding some glitter to them. Unfortunately my ribbons are a little lower than on the sketch, but you still get the gist right? I do think the large flower kind of overpowers the gate though, perhaps it's a bit too dark for it. OK I'm not going to write anymore about this card coz I'll end up taking it off the post completely if I continue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
