This is a quick card that I made with the Polka Doodles free download last week for their Blog Hop, but I missed the card deadline! I think I must be getting old - I keep getting all my dates mixed up! Anyway, as this week's theme at Polka Doodles is 'Something for Dad', I thought i would enter it.
The free download had papers, images and sentiments that were all really nice - thank you Polka Doodles! It was quite fun to see what I could come up with using the kit. I chose the green paper and the above sentiment which I mounted on Nellie Snellen oval. Then used layers of contrasting coloured card to jazz it up a bit and added ribbons, gems and pearls. I couldn't decide whether to add bow or not, but felt it needed it. It's a 'masculine' bow!!! blue for a boy!
I would have liked to have done a simple tie bow with the gingham ribbon that I used but I ran out of ribbon!! I will have to restock on ribbon soon and tidy my ribbon box - it's such a mess!! and most of the ribbon now is little scrap pieces. I have been using a lot of ribbons that I have collected free with magazines. But a lot are from new tops and dresses that me or family have bought, the ribbons to hang them up!! But strangely with the 'clothes hanger' ribbons, I have collected some really cool colours and also they are really good quality !!! tee hee! But I will have to hop over to Ribbon Girl very soon!
