Front of the card: I have some great red and black ribbon that I really need to start using more often and I saw this as the perfect opportunity. I added the flower embellishments for an extra effect and also distressed the border around them with red and black ink, although it's hard to see in the picture. I really like the parallel effect of white on black and black on white with red as an accent color.
Inside of the card: I wrote a thank you message on the white half and left the black half blank.
Back of the card: I added the 'Made Especially For You' because that's a "signature" touch I add on all of my cards, and also where the name for my blog came from, but I'll explain that in a later post. :) I also added some more flowers and the polka dot ribbon that was used on the front of the card.
I recently received this award from two fellow bloggers: Laura over at Laura's Crafts and More and Karla over at Made By Karla. Thanks so much Laura and Karla, I really appreciate it! :)
I've added this award to my new "Blog Awards" page. I found it so helpful to have one of these so my sidebar wasn't always so crowded. It works great! I'd also like to pass along this award to the following three bloggers:
Linda at My Passion Is... She is an absolutely amazing scrapbooker and photographer, her creations are always fun to look at! :)
