Jack & Ginger

Hello bloggettes!!  I'm back with a little Bella card using Jack & Ginger by Mo Manning.  It comes with it`s own sentiment ("love begins in a moment, grows over time and lasts for eternity") but I decided to go with this sentiment... "beauty is not extravagance..."... just because I love it.  :)


I don`t know where the colours came from... the hot pink isn`t really my thang... but hey, maybe way deep down I`m just a hot pink kinda gal!  (nah...lol)

 
I just love these 2 retro square dies from MFT.  I cut them out a second time with the MME wood grain paper and inserted the squares to match the background paper.  Lots of possibilities with these two... they will definitely suffer from overuse.  lol.

I did a simple inside and just before taking the photo stuck my little paper flower in the picture.  Made this goofing around one day.  It`s too big to pop on a card but I can`t throw it out - LOL.


Well back to the weekly grind... and with it being Monday... still much to do before I my head hits the pillow. 

Have a great week everyone and hope to see you on Friday for the theme challenge of Back to School.

Hi there, sorry me again! can I ask which company you used for the wood effect paper. I had loads I brought back from USA but that`s almost finished.

Aww, that is so cute. The pink was a surprise but it works :) I like the quote you chose too.

Hey about that flower - maybe you will go into making little gift boxes one day and it will go perfectly with one of them!
