Love to craft challenge 4: November anything goes


This is my design card for Love to craft challenge 4 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting by the rest of the team ... and we hope you will join in our challenge.

The card was one that I was commissioned to make. The background paper is a piece from a wallpaper sample - it has a lovely soft feel about it, with embossing and silver foiling. I swiped the border of the top piece with versamark and heat embossed with silver. All elements from stash, including the lovely organza ribbons from Hobbycraft and the craftime flowers. The swans that meet in a heart shape have been in my stash for years (still have one or two more) - good opportunity to use them.

Gold trim added top and bottom and sentiment generated on computer and printed.
