Ooh-la-la Challenge - Words of Wisdom
Good evening, I'm a little late tonight, another one of "those days" I'm afraid.
Tonight's card is for the Ooh-la-la challenge which this week is "Words of Wisdom".
This is such an inspiring quote, I do wish I could tell you where it came from, but sadly I can't, it's one of a number of quotes and sayings that I've picked up over the years and are jotted down on bits of paper (hence the reason I'm planning to make a quote book with my Bind It All very soon).
I wanted this card to have a vintage look so I decided to use a mixture of browns and pinks. The backing papers are from K & Co, the quote has been mounted onto one of the oval nestabilities with some bronze eyelets and it's all finished off with some little flowers with pearl centres.
I've spent all today playing with the BIA and have actually produced a friendship book which I hope will be winging it's way to my best friend next week. I'm sure my efforts can be improved upon with more practice, but actually I'm quite pleased with the way this has turned out, not too bad for a first attempt anyway. I wish I could share it with you, but there's no way it would scan and as I haven't yet mastered how to use the digital camera this may be unlikely.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and it would be great if you left a message as I love to know who's popped in.
