A Little Bit Country....

I have now (thankfully) come to the end of my mega run of female birthdays. Here is one card that has been bouncing around the brain for a bit...and also, because of a wee oops...the look was improved. I changed them ever so slightly with the sentiment, but apart from that they are identical.

I have used my Stamp and Write Markers for the flowers....and just after I had stamped the last flower...I splodged ink on the side of the CS!!!!!! Remedy...pull out some ribbon from the stash and add a little more interest. I loved it so much...I repeated it (minus the splodging) on the second card. I also thought I was quite clever matching up the gingham on the ovals!!!

Hope you like this little feel of country.

Stuff used:
CS: Textured red CS, (SU) Whisper White, B & W Gingham (fm the Paper Factory)
Ink: (SU) Stamp and Write Markers Real Red and Mellow Moss
Stamps: (SU) Garden Whimsy, Great Friend , Amy R Stamps "Birthday Wishes"
Punches: (SU) Large and Small Oval Punch
Other: Red and White stitched ribbon fm stash.

What a great cover up for a mistake. I would never have known and thought that you just wanted it to look like this.
And to match up the oval checks. How cool!
Love them!

There is no such thing as an oops in papercrafting - just an excuse to add something extra!!! Your something extra is the PERFECT finishing touch - that ink slodge was meant to be!!!!
Love the colours and the check!
