I Got Carried Away...

DSCF3510

I was so excited when I saw Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge today--to use ribbon as tabs on your card! I love that! I got a little carried away with my ribbon, but the card makes me smile, so I am happy with it! And it was shot right on my stamp desk because....

DSCF3503 once again, pretty Pumpkin chose my photo area as her nesting place. I just couldn't disturb her....look at her little paws folded together....awww!

Anyway, back to the card. I used the yummy Urban Prairie DP on a piece of Regal Rose and an Apricot Appeal card. This is also the SCS sketch #220, turned on its side. The image is Verve's Petals & Stems, sentiment from My Favorite Things. I cut two panels of Basic Black with my Nesties, then pieced them together to fit my longer white rectangle. Thanks for visiting today and have a great weekend!

  • Stamps: Petals & Stems, Verve; Essential Sentiments, MFT
  • Paper: WW, Basic Black, Regal Rose, Apricot Appeal, Soft Sky (ret), Urban Prairie, BG
  • Ink: Palette Noir, Soft Sky, Regal Rose, Taken with Teal, Certainly Celery
  • Acc: Ribbons from SU, Taylored Expressions, and Michaels, Nesties, lots of dimensionals

  2. Love this card, LeAnne!! Do you use sticky strip to adhere the ribbon tabs? I usually staple or sew mine to the card, but don't always want that look.

    I ADORE PUMPKIN!!! Too sweet!! Cats always have to be the center of attention. She was probably thinking, "If I sit here, under the warm light, I'll get a cameo on Momma's famous blog!!" Love ya!!
