Suspension Card

Suspension Card

Every Monday, a new Technique challenge is posted on, and today we were invited to make a suspension card. I thought it was a nice opportunity to use my new Wow Flowers stamp set again.

The colors were chosen from the Bali Breeze Designer Series paper I used for the background. I tied the retired satin ribbon around the panel to fill in the empty space on the card. On the inside, I added a white scalloped circle to frame the suspended birthday greeting.

Thanks for stopping by!
