Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 3 Little Great Granddaughters and a Great Grandson. I have been card making for about 20 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are all having a good weekend, and for those of you that are not too well, I am sending Big Get Well Wishes your way.

Finished my card for the current Butterfly Challenge this afternoon, and I can also join the Allsorts Challenge as it's Anything Goes this week.

So here is what I came up with.

This is a 6"x6" size scalloped card.
I popped holes in each of the scallop's to accommodate the ribbon to be threaded through.
My background paper I created by swirling Memento Ink Bamboo Leaves onto white card to get the colour I wanted.
Then I added Cosmic Shimmer Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish to it to give a pearlised appearance.
I added a pierced flourish, and cut out some Butterflies, flowers, and fern die cuts from the left over card I made.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Jenny this is so lovely. The addition of the punched holes to the scalloped edges is a great idea for threading the ribbon through. Love the paper peiRcing that you have done to the edging and the scroll. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

The pierced detail and threaded ribbon really are a gorgeous part of this design Jenny. I love the shimmery colours too.

Love your created background. Isn't that such fun to do when you're in the mood? Your golden/green flourish looks so good against that, and the piercing is super. I love the little flower bundle in the corner, and good idea to thread that pretty green ribbon thru the frame as you've done. Extra special details. HOpe you are much improved today. Hugs & TFS
