CCMC112....Thinking of You

Good Saturday Morning Peeps!!!

Today's card share is made with this week's challenge on Create with Connie & Mary this week it is color challenge. The colors are Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Basic Black. Of course you can also throw Whisper White in there!

I have to say this card is a big variance from my norm, I was striving for something different, something funky and cool, not sure I achieved that but it is alright huh?

The stamp set I used is the For All You Do set and the sentiment comes from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. I used some retired Pacific Point DS paper from the Good Morning Sunshine pack. I cut some squares and layered them on the side randomly. I used my sewing machine and added some black zig-zag lines. I then used some black grosgrain ribbon and "scrunched" it between the sewing lines. The sentiment was made with the word window punch and the modern label punch and is mounted to the card with some foam tape. I added a black photo corner with some small half pearls. The pearls are also on the flower and the sentiment piece.

Well, what do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know. I will be back in the AM with another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Card.

Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

we never grow unless we try new things. i like all the elements. i'm curious about the ribbon and what you use to get it to stick and stay scrunched. i've tried this with snail and glue dots and both have come undone with time. suggestions?
