Another card...

So this weekend saw my anniversary and I wanted to do a card that used brayering - I definately need the practice and this is something that the lovely Helen had made me do a couple of days ago when showing us a couple of techniques. I will hold my hands up and admit that I find it very difficult and it is something that I just cannot get to look as I want it to - but this card did turn out a lot better than my previous attempts so I am improving!
I have used the stamp sets Vintage vogue and together forever by stampin up and their colours too.
For this card I used a panel of very vanilla and have brayered at each side of the panel I have used old olive and perfect plum and have graduated this into the centre of the piece. I have stamped the vine up the right hand side of the panel and also stamped a couple of images off. I then added dazzling diamonds to the flowers of the vine with the glue pen. The sentiment is stamped in perfect plum to the right hand side of the panel.
I have added a strip of perfect plum ribbon to the top of the panel and then mounted this onto a piece of old olive card stock I have inked the edges of the to add a bit of definition.and then mounted this onto  the card blank that is perfect plum and i have also inked the edges to this.
I hope you like the card - hubby did and I have also added a picture of the roses that he bought me - beautiful!
