I just had to make a card

It's been a full day here  - I prepared a buffet lunch for a family gathering - John's nieces,  cousin and her husband and auntie - we had a lovely day and this evening I've felt tired, but I couldn't let the day go by without making a card. So this is for the sketch for Ribbon carousel 48:


The stamped silhouette is one that I received quite some time ago as part of a stamped image swap, so I don't know what stamp it is, but I like it. I decided to brayer, first with part of Big & juicy happy birthday rainbow pad and then with part of Big & juicy vibrant primary pad. The card is hammered, so the brayering has achieved a mottled effect, which at first I wasn't sure that I liked it, but now I think it looks OK.

The piece of ribbon and sentiment are from stash and the flower is a white one that was brayered.


This is also for Lawnscaping: stamp a scene and Craft a scene 4: silhouettes.
