Choose happy

Hello dear peeps,

Here is my card to show you today which has been made with fancy gift wrap. I stuck gift wrap on the entire card and did not know what to do with it. And thus it lay for many years - say six or more. Finally I tied a yellow ribbon and let it lay on my table. Aleeza suggested I use a tag which was lying on my table. I water coloured the tag and stamped the sentiment on it. It was attached to the ribbon with green embroidery yarn. Simple, yes, but it took years to complete. Anyway, all is well that ends well.


I will participate in the following challenges:

Happy crafting,

Monica

Gorgeous!!! So simple yet so elegant and beautiful. Love that paper and the yellow ribbon. The tag is perfect for this.

So glad I am not the only one who eventually makes a card from bits 'saved' years ago. This was worth waiting for, it's gorgeous
