Good morning everyone. I'm here today with my post for Rhedd and Rosies, where the challenge this week is "Ribbons and Lace".
I have made a card with a pocket, into which I've slotted a matching wooden heart. The card base is a doddle to make, simply cut the front part in half diagonally, and then use the cut off triangle to make a pocket, by sticking it on the inside of the front half of the card along the left and bottom edges (hope that makes sense!). I have added black lace and red ribbon to the diagonal edge. The stamp I used is from Indigo Blue. I've coloured in the poppies with Promarkers (Cardinal Red and Poppy) and added a touch of white pen to the smaller flowers. Embellished simply with some black butterfly punchies.
Here's a couple of close up pics:

Hope you like it!
Please come over and join in the fun! The prize on offer this time is an assortment of wooden shapes (selected by our sponsor) which can be decorated or altered.
Our sponser:

"Craft Shapes Torbay is a husband & wife team run from workshops in the sunny seaside town of Torquay in Devon.
It was created to help Kim, who originally set up her company Dotty Heaven who makes personalised and bespoke wooden gifts. She was finding it very difficult to source the right shapes and designs for her customers - and wanted to offer something a little different to the "run of the mill" craft shapes available for purchase on the internet.
Husband, Ashley researched different methods of wood cutting and after a year of using a CNC machine they decided to invest in a Laser Cutting machine.
Craft Shapes Torbay is still in it's early stages but in it's first 6 months of business is going from strength to strength - with a portfolio of over 100 designs already. New shapes and designs are being created every day and they welcome requests on new deigns too."
