Turn around and touch your toes

Hope you're all enjoying the long weekend.
It's nice here - not sunny - but pleasant enough to sit outside, 
with a good book and a glass of wine :-)

Here's the birthday card I made for my SIL.
She has a brilliant sense of humour and always finds funny cards for us - so I needed to get her back ;-)

I found a piece of this gorgeous, bright ribbon a few days ago and knew that I wanted to use it. I didn't have enough to wrap around the card and do the usual bow - so I opted for these little tags instead. 
A cute way to use up any little scraps of ribbon you have.

I used digi papers from Pink Petticoat, teaming the orange up with my favourite smoke grey.

I never usually decorate the inside of my cards - can you tell???
These pennants aren't good - but it's all I could come up with.
It's definitely something I need to practice.
