Angled just right!


Sue from My Inner Reflection inspired me with her ribbon on an angle, so I thought that I would give it a go.
I had three matching ribbons in my ribbon box and all I needed was some matching bazzill, some matching inks and some matching copics - all to tie in with the colour scheme of the ribbons.
Then... the other day I bought an inexpensive turquoise coloured bangle - very nice - and then realised that I had nothing in my wardrobe that matched it. So a handbag and an outfit later and that bangle didn't seem so cheap any more.
Next, I am planning to buy myself a Porsche key ring - cause I am on a roll.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

  12. Hi Jenny,
    Love this little character with all the layers behind him at interesting angles - boy's buttons and bows. Now about this Porsche keyring...you could go and get a Diamond nail file too. That could have a dazzling outcome as well. ;-)
    See you soon and thanks for dropping by.
    Ros.

  16. Gorgeous card Jenny!
    Great colours and fabulous copic colouring! They are sooo addictive aren't they! No desk photo from me this week :o( as we were away all weekend at Juvenile Arthritis camp (my son has it) and I knew I wouldn't have time to visit any other desks. I barely got my DT card posted on the blog before we hit the road on Friday!
    Hugs to you my friend,
    Susan xxox
