.............one of my favourite colour combinations. I remember, when I was a teenager, my Mum had a dress very similar to this card. She made it herself in a plain 'shift style' using material that you bought by the patterned panel - and it looked terribly elegant too!
Back to today's card, I was lucky enough to win some goodies from Nessa in those very colours,and a similar pattern, so this is what I made:
- 5" x 5" square black card blank
- SU 'Melon Mambo' backing card
- a piece of the paper from Nessa along with a glossy rose embellishment which covers one of the centre roses, lovely fluffy fuchsia and black twine with a rose charm - also from Nessa
- the sentiment was stamped with SU's 'Melon Mambo' onto a snippet of white card - first with the 'dotty' stamp from SU's 'Four Frames' set which I then punched out using SU's matching 'Decorative Label' punch. Sigh, in the process I smudged where I wanted to stamp the Elzybells sentiment so I stamped that onto another snippet of white card using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' and punched it using SU's 'Large Oval' punch. I know I'm being picky but it's such a shame that the oval on the frame stamp is just a bit larger than the 'Large Oval' punch - a missed trick by SU there I think :(
Thank you again Nessa - I love my prize and might send this card to myself as it reminds me sooooo much of my Mum :)
