Isn’t this little skirt just as cute as can be?  What fun fall-like colors Arielle’s chosen for us today----and I need to think fall to try to stay cool!  Man, is it hot!  In fact, I think you might need shades to view this bright card!  This is a tad bit out of my comfort zone, as it is an eclectic gathering of images and embellishments:


I used this week’s Mojo sketch 148:


along with some BG Ambrosia paper and an assortment of SU cardstocks.  I’ve also got two new SU sets, some dry embossing, some bling and I experimented with dying some seam binding, then gathering it up to use as my ribbon embellishment!  Phew!  Here’s a close up of the ribbon:


It was dyed with SU’s Smooch Spritz in gold.  I used the Square Lattice EF and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit; the new sets were Perfect Punches and Butterfly Prints.  You may also be able to see the pretty swirl from Vintage Vogue stamped on the Real Red center panel!!!  I left the inside on this card blank and will add my sentiment when I need a card.  Hey, why don’t you play along with the Royal Court this week---check out the ColourQ blog to see all the details and to check out what the talented designers have created.  You can click on the blinkie on the right sidebar and it will take you right there!

Mmmmm! What feast for the eyes, LeAnne! All the DSP, embossing and the ribbon...I have been wanting to try this. I haven't been to the fabric store in months! I bet when I go, I'll forget to buy some binding!
