Finished the Unfinished and Liked It!


More seasonal cold, windy weather has returned along with a few snow flurries – blah! We decided to take the day off today – so it’s been an easy, relaxing day. For some strange reason neither one of us has been sleeping well for the last week or so – especially me  - and it’s starting to catch up with me….but I still have the energy to make some cards!



When I was looking through my green stash for something else I found this already embossed and inked piece of cardstock. I have no idea what I was going to make from it and why I didn’t finish it but I pulled it out and finished it. It is now a card ready to send to someone.

 


It looks like I used some yellow, green and some Dusty Concord Distress inks on it so I just freshened it up a bit with the same colours and deepened the purple colour. The purple ribbon was a nice contrast and it picked up the purple ink used. The tag was die cut from a piece of green from the stash using an old Cuttlebug die set. The sentiment is a peel-off. The flower and bird came from a K and Company package that I found at the dollar store….which is not common but once in while they have items from them and other major companies, including Martha Stewart. I always take my time looking down their craft aisle because you never know what could be hiding there. The flower and bird were adhered with dimensional tape. Anyway, once I liked the card front it was glued to a black card base. I liked it so much I may find that embossing folder and make another one.



That’s all for a cold and windy Wednesday, 2017-01-04



Cheers

Violet
