A Quirky Recipe

Further to my card making exploits this weekend, here is another offering which fits in with two challenges, the first is a recipe from Quirky Crafts

- Two different types of gold (ie paper, card, embellishments, ribbon etc) - I've used gold paper, ribbon and ink

- One patterned paper - red and gold flourishy thing

- One stamped image - little Christams Wreath, stamped in gold then embellished

- Colour scheme red and gold

- One length of ribbon - was once white organza, then magically turned to gold using my Midas Tocuch (or gold ink pad...)

I've made the card using the sketch from todays 365 cards challenge as below:

 I would also like to point out that that is ACTUAL sewing round the edge of my background paper - dragged out my poor neglected sewing machine, which I swear is older than I am, and had a bash. Not very straight, but hey, nobody's perfect! :)


  1. Wow Claire - you were so quick! Love the card and the sewing, and thanks for joining in again at Quirky Crafts.
