In my first card I did not want to disturb the look of the "Gracious Lady " so I just let her be... I added the touch of red as suggested and some satin ribbon and black bling to dress it up ... The black card stock has a slight sparkle to it, and I mounted it on a while card base .
I love how she turned out
The second card I did was gate fold card and I punched out the stamped F - friends and mounted it on the pre cut red square and mounted that on some shimmery black and whiteDP to be the center focal point.. The card base is textured too . I used some red ribbon to make a band to hold the card closed
This is a 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 square card
And the third card is one I had a little fun with ~ I re-stamped some of the sentiments on ivory card stock since this tag I had was more ivory. I used the red vine embossed card stock, it too had some shimmer to it what a nice touch ! I added a flower and a pearl center and fell in love with it ... Again the black base was textured .
Sorry for the blurry print, not sure why it looks that way... I still have a few pieces to play with, but I was excited with what I made...
Thanks for stopping by, I swept off the FRONT PORCH in anticipation you all might be coming.The weather has been pretty nice other than a day or so here and there .
I hope you all are doing well
and are smiling
Til next time bye bye
