romantic but modern

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my first washi experience. It certainly looks as if romance is on the up and up as my last engagement card left the box yesterday and I needed to do one today - romantic but modern. Oh! I'm game to have a bash at anything.
This has been slightly hampered by one of these "do not do this please" - Yesterday morning I was cleaning the sticky from the back of a new spellbinder die, took my attention from what I was doing and the next thing I knew, well I'm sure you all heard me scream as I am such a wimp but the edge of the die cut right into the bend of my index finger. Every time I tried to do anything it split open again. I ran out of non-allergic tape but fortunately I'm not allergic to masking tape so I have a purple band round my finger.
Well I settled for something simple and papery with toned down buttons and a mix of pink and blue ribbon so here it is.


  1. Hi Flora. This is so different and I just love the design and colour combo.
    Hope that you are keeping well. Take care and have a lovely weekend.
    Love Sandra xx

  8. Hi Flora, poor you in the wars, bad place to have a cut. Take care don't want it infected. Your card made me think, do I like it, or don't like it. Well after examining it I do like it especially the background paper, ribbon and lace, it's good to think out of the box some days ( ehhhh was that the correct saying sometimes my brainbox let's me down).

    Have a good night.
