"Very quick & simple Card"

Hello Bloggers, glad to have you visit my Blog.  I hope you like what you see and call back again.  I f you have time please leave a comment so I know you were here.  That way I can link back to you if you have Blog, look at your work,  return the compliment by leaving you a comment.
Don`t know about where you are but I am finding it very cold  here this evening.
John is watching the football while I do this in the office.  I actually had to pop the heating on, will give it an hour then switch it off.  Maybe just me but I am cold, I hate being cold.
 Nothing much happening here today.   John had to go to Blairgowrie  to see about 2 new tyres for the 4x4  ......  not looking forward to paying that bill on Thursday when they are fitted.  I went with him and got a few supplies in at Tesco.
My card today is using the bottom half of an A4 sheet I printed off yesterday.  I used the top half on yesterday`s card,  using the bottom half for today`s.  If you had a look at yesterday`s card it was pale and delicate.  Today`s is such a contrast and both from the one sheet.

Base card 6 x 6 white card
Burgundy Card
Backing paper, I used SB Foliage Die to cut out the leaf shape where there was an vague image of leaves
I backed the aperture with green card then placed the Leaves back in slightly offset
I went over the outline of the roses with a Quickie Glue pen and added some glitter 
Broad and narrow ribbon from my box plus a greeting that I have had for some time
A very quick and very simple card really using the Backing Paper as the focal point

That`s it for today
Thank you for visiting I really appreciate it and all the lovely comments you leave.  Each and everyone brightens my day
Till next time

  4. Hi Patricia
    Simple but very effective. As Jacquie says, the way you have done the leaves is fab.
    Im sure that my late Dad used to play golf in Blairgowrie when we used to visit friends in Glenrothes.
    Have a great day. . . Today as we're now past midnight. Time for bed!
