My lovely friend Martine bought me a set of Cuttlebug embossing 'strips' a while back and I hadn't used them properly until yesterday when I was inspired to use them on envelopes.  They gave a great look to a plain envelope! Then I needed to make some cards today and was thinking up how I could use them but keep them as the focal point of the card.  Here's what I came up with.  Apologies for the terrible pictures I will change the pictures tomorrow if I get a chance when I can photograph them in daylight.  Hopefully you can see well enough for now.

Here is a better picture in daylight of another one I made similar but with a different sentiment

I made a few of these with different sentiments and ribbons.  They were remarkably simple but are quite effective really. 

I'm putting this in for several challenges today:
