Today's card is hexagon shaped to go with the Drawn with Character digi stamp of the bees, (I was going for a honeycomb look).
Once the card was made, I decided it needed a love themed charm to finish it off, so I tipped out my box of Meiflower charms and rooted through until I found a variety of designs that would go with the love and bee theme, but I just couldn't make my mind up on which one to use, so ended up using them all and making a kind of charm bunting to hang across the card. I tied each of the charms onto some black metallic cord before fixing the charm at either end onto the card with strong tape.
Thanks for visiting,

Here's a card I made for the latest Anything Goes challenge at Paper Creator using a Sassy Cheryl illustration which, as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for that sentiment, which I added to the image in Photoshop.
I punched small holes at the top and bottom of the card and threaded Meiflower narrow satin ribbon through them, tying the Love charm onto the ribbon before tying a bow. I used split rings to dangle the heart charm from the O of the love charm and then fixed the love charm onto the card using Collall tacky glue.

Here's an anniversary card I made for a friend using a fab digi set from Drawn with Character on Etsy. I love the quirky humour in this set.
I coloured the digi stamp in Photoshop as usual and then mounted the images onto x-cut postage stamp dies, the sentiment was computer generated and then die cut with a sizzix heart die and matted onto a larger heart. I punched a ribbon slot either side of the heart, threaded Meiflower grosgrain ribbon through, folded it back on itself and then stitched on a couple of Meiflower polka dot buttons, before sticking the whole thing to the card front.

Hi, just wanted to pop on and show you a card I made using Meiflowers grosgrain ribbons as the main decoration, I used a long reach ribbon slot punch to make holes in the card and then threaded the ribbons through and covered the space between the slots with stick on gems.
I also used the same digital stamp, coloured in Photoshop (I had printed it out twice to test the results on different settings on Kraft card) to make a second version of the card, this time using scalloped borders and ribbon, a charm and pearl hearts also from Meiflower.

I've got a couple of love themed cards to show you today (we are heading towards Valentines day after all), using Sassy Cheryl illustrations from Paper Creator. Both cards have been embellished with ribbons and/or gems from Meiflower.
I probably went a bit over the top with the gem and pearl encrusted heart frame, but I had half an hour to spare and couldn't resist adding all that bling LOL!

Here is a very bright and cheerful card, the image was coloured and papers chosen to go with the fabulous neon satin ribbons from Meiflower. Everything was matted onto black card to make the colours really pop!
The coloured gems in the centres of the die-cut corner matched the ribbons perfectly and all came from the Summer Mix Gems - Mixed sizes.
Thanks for popping by,

Meiflower has some gorgeous new 15mm Gingham ribbons, in a range of colours (not available on website at the moment, but you can order by phone) and as my friend was presented with a brand new granddaughter on Christmas Day (what a present!) I thought the pink would be perfect for the Grandparents card I made. I used one of Meiflower's Satin Rosebud Trios in the centre of my gingham bow, waxed cord to dangle the little hearts from and added a bit of bling with pink stick on gems.
