Fern leaves!

Good morning lovelies! Happy August bank holiday, can't believe this is the last holiday weekend now until Xmas!
 An early post from me today! 
8x8 cream scalloped edge card base, matted with Creative Ex craft card, I cut a third off and stamped fern leaf from CEx Dandelion wishes stamp set in pearlescent ivy brilliance ink, the other two thirds I embossed using CEx embossing folder, I inked the edges with same ink pad, I used American seam binding in a gorgeous dark teal/green also CEx to cover join, I pleated top and bottom and added a double bow with CEx pearl embellishment, paper in dark teal is from stash which was cut using spellbinders grand ovals also the smaller oval from same set, the sentiment is from the same stamp set, I didn't make the flowers myself this time, I inked the roses with the same ink pad just to tie them in added some more flowers and a feather! Voila! Hope you like this card? I think it's turned out pretty well concidering it wasn't what I was intending to make lol! That's me all over! Thank you for taking the time to visit xxx

This is beautiful Zoe, love everything about it, but especially the bow. Hope your hubby spoils you rotten today.

Zoe said...

Thank you Trudi! Huh! His idea of spoiling me is going to Farming world with little one, where it rained! It's a crap place too, don't know why he decided to go there we said the same thing last time we went with another one of the foster kids! Home now where he is asleep in the chair and I'm as usual looking after the little one! Bloody useless lol! Xxx

I love the colours you have used Zoe - beautiful. I am not a fan of huuuge ribbons so yours is just right. I also like the way you have ruched the ribbon at the top and at the bottom. Very very gorgeous.
