just for you - 2 challenges

Saturday, June 11, 2011
Today's card is going into 2 challenges:

The Play Date Cafe #85
Lily Pad Cards - May Arts presents a ribbon challenge

My card ~

Just a short post tonight.  It's another busy weekend!

I pulled out my Sizzix texture plates this evening.  I haven't used them in a long time.  I'd forgotten what a soft, subtle effect they add to a card.  I added 3 loops of ribbon under the edge of my focal panel.  This card came together quickly (I know...I was shocked!).  And, I'm pleased with the results.
Thanks so much for stopping in!





Supplies:
card stock: confetti cream, not quite navy (SU)
ink: rose red, night of navy, always artichoke (SU)
stamps: just believe (SU)
other: labels four spellbinders die, flourish texture plate (SU by Sizzix), cream ribbon (Michaels), foam dots
