Something completely different

A quick post from me as I am busy working on some Crafter's Companion samples. I thought I would share this card with you, which I made recently for a civil partnership. One of the couple is American and as neither of them are girly girls I went with a red, white and blue them using DCWV Nantucket papers. This is an 8" square card so I used large Go Kreate dies, Marianne star die circle, MS heart and double loop border punches. I also used my neglected X cut ribbon border punch and threaded navy ribbon through the paper. I added an LOTV sentiment, some pearl stars and a large navy bow.

I'll be back tomorrow with my Winter Wonderland DT card and candy winner.
