Sometimes you just need the right inspiration to get up and do something immediately. That happened when I saw Lin's card. I embossed one piece of 'wood' patterned paper and also a piece of what that had had some ink swiped over it. I sanded the 'wood' piece and inked the other with a coordinated colour (the yellow). I finished the lighter card with some other patterned paper, stamped on the reverse of a label from some washi tape and some ribbon from a the label of a top I bought recently.
Thanks, Lin. Looks like you managed to get me blogging again, too!
