Well, it's Thursday again and you know what this means, right? Yes, a new challenge at Crafty ribbons blog. :) We enjoyed seeing all your yummy-licious creations the last time and we hope you'll join us with our new challenge too. This time we want you to follow this wonderful sketch.
Of course you can rotate it if you want to. :) I did - I turned it upside-down. lol
I did A LOT (really, a loooooooot) of stamping on this card. The background paper (the one you can barely see) was just a plain beige paper when I started working with it. But then I stamped over it with Viva Decor's Cameo stamps, Recollections' Paris stamps and Stampabilities' Faded text background stamp. I distressed the edges with my scissors and then inked them with Memento Rich cocoa stamp pad. I was a good girl and I just used small left over pieces of my scrap paper for the layering. The music sheet is actually recycled music sheet from when I was still going to music school (which was a looooong time ago). I just colored it with TH Brushed corduroy distress ink The flowery paper is from Provo Craft, the dark brown paper on the bottom of the page is from ... hmmmm, I am not sure, but I *think* it is from K&Company ... and the "swirly" (or whatever you want to call that) paper is from Sizzix' Little sizzles. The gorgeus butterfly stamp is from Close to your heart. Corners and ovals are Spellbinders' dies and the swirl is Marianne design die. The oval behind the butterfly is embossed with Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder. I didn't use many embellishments, just a golden brad and some flower from my stash and this seam binding ribbon from Crafty ribbons. I made the butterfly border with my border punch
And what's the prize, you may ask. Some fab new Christmas ribbons from Crafty ribbons.
Perfect for the Christmas cards, don't you think so?
Well, that's all from me today. Have a wonderful day! Hugs! xx
