Fabulous Friday - Elegant Beauty :-)

Hi everyone.  Happy Friday :-)

Sorry I haven't been around much this last couple of weeks.  It has been quite hectic with end of school and my eldest daughter Shannon Graduating.

So proud of her.  She achieved Honor Society for getting an average of over 80 in all her courses this year.  She picked up a scholarship/bursary from the A Y Jackson Alumni (her school) and also an award for having the highest semester average for Mathematics, she missed the Chemistry award by 1pt :-)  Look at that grin :-)

She will be off to college in the fall, studying to be a Veterinary Technician.

As part of her Grad gift, Shannon and I are currently in the UK enjoying a couple of weeks visiting friends and family, we left this past Wednesday and get back on the 20th July :-) Andy is taking some time off too, at home with Emily, and getting some house stuff done as well as a few days out :-)

Anyways, onto today's post.

We are in inspiration week for our Polkadoodles Add Ribbon or Twine Challenge.  I had to make a card to take to the UK with me and I just had to use the fabulous Rose Budd Papercrafting Collection. I love this collection, it is so elegant.

I used an Mojo Monday sketch from the middle of June, too late to enter the challenge but I thought the sketch was fabulous.

For the inside I made it with the same layers and even ribbon.  As this card will be hand delivered I wasn't worried about the weight :-)

I haven't used the sentiment tickets in a while so had to add these two from the collection.

I inked all the edges of all the layers and also added some dimension to the main image by layering the pieces with foam tape.  And a beautiful butterfly to finish off.

So, now it's your turn to go along and enter the challenge at Polkadoodles, Add Ribbon or Twine :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
