Bad hair day!

Here's a card I made with a cute Sassy Cheryl image called bad hair day, I thought it would be nice to have more than just the usual strip of ribbon and a bow so I combined a few pieces of Meiflower satin ribbons with waxed cord instead. crossed them over in the middle and then tied them together with both a ribbon and cord bow. I added some mixed size stick on pearls to the top corner too as it looked a bit empty.

Thanks for dropping in,

Special Birthday

I made a 21st birthday card for a friends daughter and traditionally here in the UK the key to the door is closely related to this special birthday, probably because of this song...

 21 today, 21 today, 
she's got the key to the door, 
never been 21 before.

Meiflower has some gorgeous diamante key charms which I thought would be perfect for the card, (they are not in the online store yet, but you can pick them up at the craft shows, or give Meiflower a ring.) I used 4mm satin ribbon to hold the key in place and 10mm satin ribbon across the card front with matching bow. I also added 3mm gems to the centres of the lace flowers.

Thanks for stopping by,
