A Starburst

Hi There Friends

Hope you are all well and enjoying a lovely week. Sorry for disappearing. I have been trying to visit you all but there's lots going on here all interfering with the crafty side of my life.  Winter seems to be coming towards us like a runaway fright train. I have been trying to get the garden put to bed and plants tucked into the greenhouse before it gets here.  Aw but you know I can’t stay out of The Closet for very long so I do have a card to share with you today.

I found this tutorial some time ago and I’ve been wanting to make one ever since. I used Spellbinders Foliage, a portion of Sizzlit branch with leaves and layered some flowers from my stash. I don’t have a ribbon die yet so I stamped my sentiment then cut it out with Spellbinders Labels Three. Just ran it thru the Cuttlebug cut and embossed then repositioned the die to make a narrow ribbon and back thru the bug. I used a slot punch then weaved my ribbon thru and behind my sentiment. I think this would look much better if I had inked my edges but over all I'm happy with how it turned out. Since the entire card was made with scraps including the ribbon I’ll be sharing it at Jules’ playground.  

THANKS for stopping by and thank you for your lovely comments.

Have an Amazing Day!
