Happy Anniversary


Green, Silver and Gold are the colours at the Playdate Cafe this week.

I made this tag to add to an Anniversary Card I am making.  I embossed the tag with a Damask Cuttlebug folder first and added green, gold and silver ink.  The silver heart ( Damask Hearts from Elusive Images) was embossed in silver on to tissue paper and glued to the tag.

I tinted a Prima flower gold and added a silver charm with a pearl brad.

I had the ribbon in my stash - normally use it for wedding cards, and just added some gold german scrap, a TH tag and a silver frame and gold heart charm.

Yippee it's the weekend!  Have a good one.

Thank you for looking X

This is beautiful - am working my way down your blog - can you tell? You have been so busy.
Anyway, I digress, love the colours, or should I say the way you have used them. It looks quite textural from the screen.
