Mum's Monogram Card

Happy Thursday everyone!  So, as I said last week, I made my Mum some monogram cards for her birthday.  Here they are:

These are 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  The "D" is from Quarter Note - I just love the font on that cartridge, it is so pretty! The shape the D is on, is cut from Elegant Edges.  The pink layer, is 4x4 and is embossed with Cuttlebug's Victorine folder.  You'll notice that I used 2 different ribbons.  I originally went with the pink, but found it was getting lost.  I tried the black, and liked that one better, so the last 4 have the black ribbon.  I used my pink Round it All to round the corners.  Mum really liked them!

A challenge or two for my cards:
Waste not Wednesday - everything to create these cards except for the case, came from my scrap box
Paper Take Weekly - anything goes
Bunny Zoe Crafts - anything goes
Hybrid Chick Card Caravan - use pink
Secret Crafter - anything goes

I'll be back tomorrow with the latest challenge from Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenges, so be sure to come back and visit me then :)

A la prochaine...
