I hope you've had a fab week. Mine has been filled with good news!
Firstly one of my lovely friends has got engaged, her partner completly surprised her. Becca is a bit of a twitcher, she loves wild birds and David proposed to her at the RSPB headquarters in Bedfordshire while listening to "Close to You"...how romantic!
I also recieved some good news of my own....a little while ago I told you that I had entered my little afternoon tea blog into the UK Blog Awards. Well, from the 95 fab blogs in the food and drink cateogry, I got shortlisted! The first phase of the awards was open to the public vote, so I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who voted for me. I am so chuffed! Next is the judged phase, which is followed by the awards ceremony in April. I am so excited!
This week's challenge from My Time to Craft is a lovely embellishment challenge, as we want to see buttons and ribbon on your creations. You need to feature at least three buttons and a gorgeous piece of ribbon.
I made my card for the lovely Becca and David to celebrate their special day.....
I have used a plain grey backing paper and some gorgeous patterened papers that feature birdies and bird houses. I have gone with a grey ribbon, and three old buttons. My cute birdie image has been coloured with my Promarkers and I have added some personal details into the heart.
I'm really pleased with how this card turned out, featuring birds and having a slightly vintage feel - all perfect for the happy couple!
