Morning Glory

Good evening to you all. Welcome to another cold December evening. Still, there is nothing like a bit of crafting to make you forget the cold outside.
This card is for the Sketch and Stash Challenge #50. The stash used was the textured lilac card used for the base card which I have had for years and the beautiful stamp from Elusive Images.
The lilac A4 card was folded in two to make the A5 base card, The edges were tinted with Dusty Concord Distress ink to give some contrast.
The image was stamped onto plain white card and coloured in with Promarkers. A second image was also stamped and only the two blooms were coloured in and cut out. The edges of the first image were tinted with the same Distress ink that was used on the card base.
A ribbon was wrapped around the image and secured on the reverse side. A bow was tied, using the same colour of ribbon, trimmed and bonded in place with Pinflair glue. Four border strips were cut from lilac paper using a Borderability die. Two of the border strips were carefully bonded in place with double sided tape along the long sides of the image. The other 2 strips were trimmed to the required length and secured in place along the top and bottom edges. This whole assembly was then bonded to the base card.
A short strip of the textured lilac card was cut and some ribbon stuck along the centre line. One end of this strip was cut to give a forked end. This was stuck at a jaunty angle in the top right hand corner and the extra flowers bonded in place with Pinflair glue.
