Friendship plaques


My 10cm plaques are one of my best sellers particularly those for a friend. I cover them with various odd papers and stamp the sentiments directly onto the lighter papers and onto white card for the darker papers. The bottom two sentiments are from a Card-io set and the others are from an Inkylicious set. I find it easiest to batch make these with a similar design which varies each time I make them. I actually made 10 which I was pleased with these as I need to restock the cafe/gift shop I supply as they also sell well in there. The flowers are Summer blooms from Wild Orchid with pearls from The Hobby House.  The ribbons are mostly odd pieces which I cut from the inside of tops when I buy them as I can't stand them and who uses them to hang their tops up anyway.

I would like to enter these into the anything goes challenge at Simon Says.
