One Year Younger

Good afternoon. I've been beavering away in my craft room today making Christmas cards - it's getting nearer and nearer and the weather is certainly turning!

Todays post is not about Christmas though, I'll share them during December.
 I was asked to make a card for a female poet and struggled a bit at first but then came up with a lovely image from Joanna Sheen's Patience Strong CD.
The card is very simple to highlight how delicate the verse and image are. I printed it out on super-smooth paper and matted it onto lilac card before mounting it on a A5 cream card blank. The ribbon is from my stash and was originally white but so it matched in with the theme I colored it with my Spectrum Noir pens, made a triple bow and glued it around the lower part of the lilac card. I left it at that so as not to distract from the image.
Thanks for stopping by
