Congratulations in Silver

Hi Bloggers

I had a wonderful time at Ally Pally on Saturday. I saw demos by Pam Smith, Julia Watts and Phill Martin, I talked to lots of other people including Sue Wilson and of course a trip to Ally Pally would not be complete without spending lots of money.

For today's card my daughter asked me to make an anniversary card for her friend's parents that had to be posted - challenge accepted. This is what I created.

I started with an 8"x 8"card blank. I cut a silver mat and embossed it with the Quilted Flower A4 embossing folder. Then I cut four corners with a  Spellbinder corner  die and an ornate square with another Spellbinder die in black paper.

I stamped the  Congratulations pre-cut stamp onto white paper with Perfect Medium and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder. I cut it out and made a thin black mat for it. When I stuck it to the I used mounting foam to give it a little height.

Once everything was stuck in place I decorate. the background with CS Pearl white PVA.

This is a picture of me with Sue Wilson on Saturday at Ally Pally she was so busy but she still made time for me to have this photo taken she is a very generous lady. As someone on Facebook pointed out it does look like Sue's hand is coming out of the lady behinds shoulder. You can see how busy Sue's stand was in the background. I do wish I had photos of the other people I met. There is only one thing for it, I will have to go back in April. 

I hope you have a good week.

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
