Saturday 28th January

It is the weekend again and I have spent most of today in my craft room but I have just realized that I am hungry so I have called it a day. I didn't get ant crafting done yesterday as I spent the whole day shopping at Meadowhall, the sum total of my purchases was one bottle of top coat nail varnish, when what I really wanted was an outfit for a party. How is it that when you are not looking for anything there are always loads of things that you like but when you are desperate you can't find a thing ?
I digress, the card that I have made this afternoon I would like to enter for Rainbow Lady's challenge -
"Scottish theme" to celebrate Burns night.

For the base card I have used an A4 sheet of tartan Kanban card. I matted Dark red card with gold and wrapped a tartan ribbon round it, I then fixed it to the centre of the base card. I fixed another length of ribbon across the top of the base card with a bow in the centre, the loose ends of the bow were fastened loosely at measured interval to the matted card. The images are two freebies from Dover Publications. I have coloured them with Promarkers and distressed the edges. I then matted and layered with deep red and gold, I have then fixed them with foam pads onto the centre of the trailing ribbons card
