For now you will need to be happy with looking at my second attempt at with the brayer ... once again I am estatic with the way it ended up. There are a few mistakes. One that is damn obvious and the other actually added to the card. I am not going to tell you either of them but no doubt you will spot the obvious one :-).
Enjoy looking and look forward to your comments.
Now the details of the card area a little blurry... not quite sure why but I can't remember the colours I have used. The Stamp Set is retired (Asian Artistry L2) and button from old stock.
Card Stock is: Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White.
I have used the Top Note Die, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and Lots of Tags Sizzlets through the Big Shot.
Some Satin Ribbon, a bit of Linen Thread, and oval punch and TAA DAA a card.... not forgetting adhesives, Snail, Sticky Strip and Dimensionals etc.
Anyway hope you like it all and will try and post again in the not too distant future... so much going on right now because we are in the process of moving house, not just down the road though, to a totally different State so big clean out happening! EEEkkkkk (fingers crossed Hubby doesn't find his way into the craftroomo LOL)

I have used the gorgeous Sweet and Sour Specialty DSP, it has a glossy image on one side which is the side with the polka dots on the bird. It gives it a really lovely shimmer look.
I also pulled out a retired stamp set from the 2010 Autumn/Winter mini as I thought the saying very appropriate.
Oh and I am just loving the striped ribbon and satin ribbons - expect to see LOTS of cards with these ribbons (actually to tell you the truth I LOVE all the ribbons but at the moment these would be the ones I go to first)
Hope you like looking:
