Rub On's Are Great...

Hello again and thanks for stopping by.
I have just one card to share with you today as the other I have made is for a challenge in a couple of weeks and so I can't add it here today.

I made this card for my friend who has a birthday this next week, it is a 5x7 card blank in black.
I have used a sheet of Basic Grey paper on this one which I have had for some years, one of those you get out and think "why did I buy you". But this time its time was up lol.
I ran it through the GC using one of Sue Wilson's new embossing folders, the big A4 ones. I finally managed to cut correctly the SB edgabillity bracket die using a strip of black and then yellow which I placed on the left but first ran a length of white ribbon around the raw edge. I cut some leaves from the SB die and two pennants which I stuck down using silicon glue for height. Then using a panel from the "Pickled Pear" collection from Chrissy over at www.merlyimpressions.co.uk  I used a "friends" rub on which I chopped up to fit the gap and matted that on to 2 layers and placed on the card at an angle.
I stamped one of the Kaisercraft butterfly's on to acetate and cut out after first colouring in a little and then using silicon glue I attached to the bottom of the panel after lifting its wings. After adding the pearls to the die cut strip the card was ready.

Thanks for looking in today.
