Ribbons and lace

The paper and toppers for this card are from the My Craft Studio Click, Print, Go CD "Flawless Florals" - I think it was a freebie from Create & Craft a couple of years ago.

I used gold-edged white ribbon and picked up the gold from it in the layering, with lace either side, and topped the ribbon with a strip of daisy braid. After adding the topper, I stuck a gem to the centre of each daisy.

You can't see it but I layered some of the paper onto gold and put it in the inside as a panel to write a greeting on - dark card needs something to write on, and I think when you can make the inside co-ordinate with the outside it looks smarter than adding an insert.

    A very pretty but simple designed card. The paper and topper are beautiful with their simple designs and colour schemes allow the beauty of the card to speak for itself. Gorgeous flower detailing on the border panel.
