A Card:)

Hi Friends,

How was your Monday?  I hope you’ve had a great start to your week.  I did, but boy I am so tired now. I ran several errands after work and zapped myself.  I’m a zombie right now.  Needless to say, this will be a pretty short post.

Tonight’s card is for a couple of challenges, the Embellish challenge, and the Gallery Idol contest by Paper Crafts (I told myself I wasn’t going to enter this, but I’ve caved in).

Check out the Embellish challenge photo, so pretty. Don’t you just love weddings? I want to get married again… to Carlin, but I’d like to do it again. I just loved these colors, and butterflies (HELLO, I love butterflies), so sign me up.


Here’s my card


You know I’m really loving the crinkled ribbon look. I don’t know how others do it (I’ve not watched some of the videos floating out there). I just run a needle and thread through the middle of the ribbon and pull it.  I glued it down with some 3 in 1 craft glue (very similar to Zip Dry).  The black lace is from May Arts, and I love it.  The cream ribbon is Offray and I actually distressed it with Ranger distress inks.  How about that patterned paper??  It’s made by Kaiser Craft (Tea at Elsie’s), and is so pretty.

Thanks for stopping by friends, and remember to sign up for some blog candy, the deadline is Thursday (and I’m probably to do the random pick on Friday Morning).



Here are the other supplies not mentioned above:

Stamps:  Hero Arts (sentiment), Paper Trey Ink (butterfly and trail)

Ink: Memento, Ranger distress inks

I've not tried ribbons like that on a card - I may have to soon. I counted recently, & I need 18 anniversary cards for June! Plus, one wedding.
