CHALLENGE, WINNER, and SWEET STUFF!!!!
Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope your week is going exceptionally well!!! Except for a little rain(thank heavens no snow and ice) everything here is marvelous!!! I am feeling so wonderfully WELL that I could almost turn a cartwheel if I wasn't afraid of breaking my OLD neck!!!! hahaha!!
Today begins a new challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings, where we were asked to use RED/PINK/WHITE and the challenge is sponsored by the marvelous Wild Orchid Crafts, my very favorite place for all things FLOWER!!!! Thank you so much WOC!!! I hope you will all come over and join in with us for a chance to win a magnificent prize!!!!
For my challenge card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is from the Annalee Collection by Prima--just love the muted, soft colors in this stack. All panels are machine stitched before placing a white paper lace doily on the base. I used that darling little Tilda with Heart Lace from Magnolia-licious, stamped her on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics adding a touch of Star Dust Stickles for the lace. The horizontal is made with ribbons/trims from the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop: 7/8" Red Organza topped with 3/4" Pink Satin Pleated Trim and adding a double flat bow of 5/8" Pink Sheer Ruffle Edge Ribbon made with the Bow Easy Tool and dangling a silver heart charm. The floral treatment is from Wild Orchid Crafts: 25mm Wild Rose and 20mm Open Roses resting on MS punched out branches. I also added several Pearl Heart Pins to match the string of hearts Tilda is holding and pearl pins from my stash. The front was finished with more pearls from WOC to soften all corners. Little Tilda is looking up at the heart pins as if to ask, "How did I miss those 3 red hearts for my string??? hahahahahah
The inside of my card uses basically the same materials as the front. On the first panel I used the same ribbon treatment and merely added a tiny White Heart Shaped Bead on the bow. On the second panel I used a larger white paper doily, triple Nesties, another bow with bead, and all around the doily I also used heart beads.
I hope you like my little card and will decide to join with us at the RRR Challenge this time!
