Tie A Yellow Ribbon

Good Afternoon, my card to share today is for this week's Less is More Challenge -  Cocktails. I had a couple of ideas for this but decided to get out my beautiful Chocolate Baroque stamp again.  Fingers crossed that Chrissie and Mandi will be happy with my Cocktail of Flowers.  I stamped the image with Versamark and used Silver Lustre embossing power, by Cosmic Shimmer, I coloured with Promarkers, matted the image onto Papermania shimmer card and silver mirri, added a yellow ribbon and some aurora gems from my stash.  I used my Quickie Glue pen and crystal glitter on the 'bubbles'  I've just noticed that I've left the bow a bit too close to the right hand edge, can't change it now because if I try to take the topper off I will ruin the card and have to start all over again.

I will have to make another card like this with red flowers, as it's my Mum and Stepdad's Ruby Wedding Anniversary in December.

I hope you like my card and many thanks for visiting today.

  13. This is simply beautiful... a gorgeous cocktail of flowers!
    I add my bow to a flat ribbon using my bow maker, so that it can be slid along and positioned wherever I want along the length of the ribbon. I believe I did a tutorial on LIM if you;re interested.
    Beautiful card
    Thanks so much
