The Garden Gate

Morning my crafting friends, hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend?

May I give a very warm welcome to my newest follower Laurigami,  great to have you on board.

Bibiana is giving away lots of new goodies over the next two weeks so join her blog and good luck.

Among my little box of die cuts and bits of card were some little images that I had printed so I have decided to use one for today's card.

I wanted to do a strip of my favourite backing stamp so I started with this then worked from there seeing what would look good together. The doilies were an after thought as I felt it looked a bit plain and I did not have any die that cut doileys to give a lace effect so these had to do!

Items used:

White 6" X 6" base card
First Edition Up, Up and Away Premium Paper Pad
Justrite Background Stamp Secret Garden
Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder Burnt Red Lustre
Celebrate White Ribbon
Dovecraft tea Party Paper lace Doileys
Joanna Sheen Thomas Kinkade CD Rom

I am not sure whether the White Ribbon was necessary now as I don't think it does anything for the card except cover up the beautiful background stamp lol! Perhaps a narrower ribbon would have looked better or none at all!

I have decorated the inside of the card with the same backing paper as on the front with another doiley stuck in the center for a sentiment or wording.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
