As Requested

























Good Sunday morning to all!  I had a request from follower Craftypurpledragon (love that name!) to put this card up on my blog.  Ask and you will receive, huh? LOL  See, I do read (and love) all the comments you leave!  I do have to apologise for the crooked pic, though.  I had planned to take a better photo of it before I put it up, but the card is not in my possesion any longer so this one will have to do.  I used the ironworks borders, eight of them to be precise!  There are two on each side of the vintage ribbon ruching on this card.  The focal die is the Picot edged circle.  It is dificult to tell from my 'er "photography" but the turquoise background is the negative from the die and I have raised it up with mounting foam pieces.  The very centre circle with the text is also raised.  I inked the inside of the text circle with a combination of broken china and forest moss Distress Ink to match the background.  Just add a bow, couple of decorative stick pins, pierce around the edge and you are finished.  Not a difficult card, but not a quick one either, but it was a whole lot of fun to make!
On another note, I would like to say a huge thanks to Mandy and Dawn who emailed me yesterday about how to go about fixing my blog!  I was beside myself trying to get it back and they talked me through it.  It still isn't how I would like it, but it is 100% better than it was.  At one point on Friday, I had lost all my followers, my blog candy and my counter for several hours but I managed to find them!  For now, I think I will leave it be for awhile, but I did manage to add a few new features including an email alert you can sign up for so it will let you know when I put up a new post, a search button, a list of popular posts and a fun traffic feed! Thanks again for your help ladies, it was much appreciated!  All for now, Sue x

Love this card, but then I love them all....I'm in Australia for 2 months, so enjoying time to checkout this blog every day. I've been trying to find some nice lace & ribbon, but it's all so expensive, when suddenly the 'penny dropped'....the ironworks border die looks just like very pretty lace, and I can use any coloured card I need to match up with my project. And the great thing is....I already have this set at home...yay! Thanks for all the inspiration. x
