Anything Goes -- with Ribbon & Lace EDITED 8/29/10


I'm so sorry I didn't realize there was a prize for participating this week at For Fun and am updating this post to show what you can win by playing along with us.

Happy Wednesday!
This week we have a great challenge for you at For Fun sponsored by Craft Brulee.  Anything goes - but - you must use a ribbon of some type somewhere on your card or project.
That's it, easy-peasey.

OMG, you've just got to go see what the design team at For Fun has come up with. Talk about some fantastic inspirational projects - they've really got it together. Please check it out cause I know ya won't be disappointed when you see the lovely altered art bird cage by Amelia
That's the only sneak peek from me tonight...........LOL

The DP is from Once Upon a Time paper pack, I think from DCWV.  The beautiful flower is from Craft Brulee.  Now don't faint - I've put sentiments on my card this time (I can't believe it either) but I wanted that flower to be the main focus on the card.  The stamps are one of the first ones I purchased a long time ago and I have no idea where they came from.  They were stamped with embossing ink and then heat set with Ranger Ultra Fine Gold embossing powder.  I added gold Stickles to each corner of the die cut for that extra bling.  Then to top it off, I wanted the amber heart gems from my stash to come as close to matching the center stone on the flower so I covered them with Lime Green Stickles.  

A BIG thank you to Marie at Paper Cupcakes for this fantastic sketch.  Thanks a bunch Marie!!!!

That's it from me this morning - short and sweet.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see ya again soon.  Hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I can pop on over and see what lovely new creations are on your blog.  Hope I've made sense cause I'm pooped tonight!

It's good enough to eat, (or maybe I'm just hungry)but the chocolate colours with the gold splashes of bling are wonderful. I didn't faint when I seen the sentiments on your fantastic card as they look super and I adore embossing as it always creates a very rich feel. *Hugs*
