Monday evening quick post

Good evening, hope for those in the UK that you have been enjoing the bank holiday today, although back to work tomorrow (boo!!),  I really could get used to these four day weekends after two in a row :-)

We went over my SIL's today for a BBQ, which was lovely, but I had time to make a quick acceptance card for a wedding that we have been invited to.

I decided to keep it simple, and follow a similar style to others that I have done in the past.  I just love a design that works for anything and the basic elements of this card have been twisted for wedding, anniversary, birthdays and Christmas.

On this one I punched the border with a MS heart punch and used some wired ribbon in a dull gold to compliment the Bling CS I used behind the punched area.

I found a font here that I used (it's called Pea Nicki)as I don't have an acceptance stamp, and used the same font for the inside.  I punched the same border punch along the gold CS and matted the printed text onto it.  The text is printed in a brown shade as I thought black would be too harsh!!

Fingers crossed they like it :-)

I'd like to enter this card for these challenges

That's it from me today, plenty more to come over the next few days!!
