Friendship Blooms: Sale-A-Bration 2008

Ok, so I'm feeling like I missed the mark just a bit on this one. Do you ever have those cards that you start, and you really want them to succeed, but it seems that they are doomed from the start? Well, this one was like that. It took forever...and the reason for that was probably that it just wasn't working...but I went on valiantly, trying to force a round peg through a square hole. I'm putting it up here because I wanted you to know that I tried. I promise I did. Really hard! I'm looking forward to starting something new and fresh tonight though ;-).

The colours (and herein lies my problem I think) are Brocade Blue, So Saffron and Rose Red. I thought they looked ok together when I started...

The Stamps are from the very pretty Friendship Blooms set, part of this year's Sale-A-Bration selection. The ribbons are from the Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals, not available in Oz yet...I got them as a gift, and they're from the US. The Brad is also not available here...but I have my fingers crossed for next year ;-).

Hi Sam,

This is a great card. Your colours have come together really well. I haven't got anything from the SAB yet, am waiting until I put an order in, but this is one set I am hoping to get.

Also, I couldn't find your email address in my sent box, though I know I've emailed you personally and wasn't sure how to do it from here. I got the nestibilities from K.I.S.S (Lana Murray), her details are on my blog if you want to contact her, she has some great craft stuff if you buy other than SU.

Cheers Fiona
