Challenge #35 Lets Ribble

Well it's actually nice and cool here for a change today.
Maybe I should have waited til today instead to have made this card - not my finest hour - as I have been finding it almost impossible to get up to my craft room in all the hot weather we've had lately.

This card is for a fabulous challenge over at Artful Times  
to do a bit of ribbling.

I needed to make a Silver Wedding anniversary card and couldn't think of what to make (put it down to heat again LOL)  and thought of the white on White challenges a while back and voila!
Had a bit of problem getting photo - being white with a bit of silver - I think it looks a bit better in real life - honest it does... hopefully

Used a white A5 card and the first layer I stuck to it was using a large Martha Stewart punch down the side of a piece of A5 trimmed white card. Then added a little silver glitter glue.

Punched out various bits in white or silver card using various Marianne dies, small Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

For the bird on the branch I had a silver one and then punched one in white and cut out just the bird and stuck it on, then another silver one and cut out the wing to stick on.

The numbers I made on my computer and then printed and cut out.

Put the numbers and some parts of flowers through the ribbler.
Added more glitter glue to numbers.
Arranged he pieces and stuck it all down.

Thanks for stopping by x
