Hi there bloggies!
I had so much fun with today’s card! I was really excited when I saw the latest CAS-ual Friday challenge! CFC18: Create a Clean And Simple project inspired by a book, and use the colors black, white and red. One of my favourite childhood books was called “Tom’s Midnight Garden” written in 1958 by Philippa Pearce … (not to be confused with “The Secret Garden”). I couldn’t remember the name of the book … but I did remember that it was a story of friendship between a boy & a girl … and there was a “garden” and a boy called “Tom” … so off I went on a “google search”! (Google Queen in action!!!) And … I found exactly what I was looking for — a review that brought back all the wonderful memories of this childhood favourite! You can read about it HERE … if you are interested. So … in keeping with the title of the book … my card is a “moonlight” (midnight) one with a garden! And … I have included “Friends” as a phrase to signify the friendship in the story. I hope you like it!
So … I also deliberately added some ribbon flourishes to this card … so I could also enter it in the new Stampin’ Up! ONLY challenge this week.SUO 27: Ribbons & Bows.
And … here is a close up of my ribbon treatment … All the little loops and ends are added separately. It was a little fiddly … but well worth the effort! Oh … and before I go … look who came to visit today!!! And … I even got to mind her while her mum went to the gym. Did I go to the gym??? Why on earth would I go to the gym when I had this little treasure to play with???
