I'm sorry

The background of this card was made by mopping up the spots of ink left on my craft sheet after making the previous card.

This time I've put a panel of William Morris card down the side with some spotted ribbon either side. The WM card has been recycled from a stationery wallet that originally held some lovely writing paper/envies. This piece is an snippet that's been lurking for some time in my offcuts box, so it's another for Pixie's crafty snippets 18.

I'v had the 'I'm sorry' sentiment for ages and ages, but not found a use for it before now, but I think it goes well here - unfortunately I got glue on the right hand corner, so I've had to cover it with a flower, which I think looks just right anyway.

Once again there is more sheen on the background spray (mixture of DIs and perfect pearls with water) than you can see here.
