I cut one of these gorgeous floral medallions out of one of the papers, mounted it onto some Early Espresso card stock and cut round it. It was decorated with some mini brads before being attached to a ribbon tailed card stock strip. Florals can be okay for males in small doses and there's a touch of the William Morris about this I thought.
Before attaching the strip to the Crumb Cake card base, I stamped the gorgeous ships inventory background stamp from The Open Sea and stamped a sentiment...
... and made this little tab with a piece of card stock and the label stamp from Tea Shoppe to balance out the design.
Here's what you'll need to make today's card:
Stamps: The Open Sea, Tea Shoppe, sentiment (retired)
Ink: Early Espresso, Poppy Parade
Card stock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Other: Square punch (to make ribbon tail), Simply Scored, mini brads, paper snips, stamp-a-majig

One of the many events I attended last week was a fund-raising fashion show at which my youngest son was modelling (there is no end to his talents!) He threw himself into it with his usual enthusiasm and came out buzzing. After congratulating him on a great job, I suggested that he consider joining the drama club when he moves to senior school in September as he loves performing in public. I warned him that he might have to take minor parts at first and work his way up. He nodded. "Like a bush," he said. "I'd be quite happy being a bush but I'd want to be the best bush ever! I'd want people to come out saying 'that was a great play but did you see the amazing bush in the third scene? Man that bush rustled!'" If you ever see an oscar nominated bush, that'll be my son!
I'm continuing to receive lovely messages to wish him well after his cycling accident at the weekend. Thank you so much - he and I really do appreciate it. I shall be taking him to the dentist today and we'll see if anything can be done to save that tooth.
Have a happy Monday!
