Whatzup Dog Tag!

I made this a little while ago, and submitted it for the new Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine, so I can now post it on my blog! Something useful for my Dad to keep his keys on, I think!
I used a technique I saw in a newsletter from The Greeting Farm (by Rachel Schneider - this link is to the tutorial on her blog).

Wedding Day Celebrations!

My best friend from school got married on Monday, and I was one of her bridesmaids. We all had a wonderful few days (stayed at the beautiful hotel the night before and the night of the wedding) and I can finally post the crafty things I made for her on here!
Rach made her own bunting - BY HAND - in the colours on the card, and there is a little running joke about bay trees, as they have one that they decorate instead of a Christmas tree. (They also had bay trees at the wedding, and on the invitations!)

Images: "Wedding Couple" from Lili of the Valley, bunting from Whimsy Stamps  Celebration Pennant  stamp set, tree from Papermania Born To Shop "Go Green" stamp set, all coloured with Promarkers.
Paper: Papermania "Raspberry Champagne" paper pack
Tools: Marianne Die ribbon border & flourishes.
Embellishments: Ribbon, Glamour Dust.

Thought I'd have a bit of a play with some fine ribbon on this card, twisting and gluing it to make a little border!
