Rhododendrons



The sky seems to be falling on us here in Northern Ireland at the moment - it hasn't stopped raining for days.
That's my excuse for the photo! The card is actually a beautiful shade of lilac.

Add to that the fact that our house is upside down while a new bathroom is being fitted and you'll get the picture....
Some of you will know that I have worked for several years in interior design and property renovation, and over the years I've been working on countless bathroom refurbs. I love choosing, planning and working on it all. Well, I don't like it happening in MY house!! I've put it off till it couldn't wait any longer.

The card - I've used my drawing of a Rhododendron (available HERE) and mounted it on a circle cut with Tonic Studios Circle Shape Mate and embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.
Then I added a little trim around the circle using my Victorian border punch like so...




The ribbon is threaded through the Tonic Studios riblet punch and the Butterfly came from the Tonic Studios Multi Detail Butterfly punch.

Tonic Studios are updating their website at the moment so I'll add the links next week.
Have a lovely weekend, Ruth :)

  1. It looks fab Ruth and I agree with you about the bathrooms having just had a new one fitted a few months ago. The upheaval was dreadful but thankfully all was more or less back to normal in a week.
    Love the way you have trimmed the circle - great idea. :)
