One card - Two challenges

Tuesday, March 3, 2009




I made good use of my alone time this weekend and got some extra stamping in. This card is for Karen's weekly sketch and for a recipe challenge at the The Pink Elephant. Participants were to use a die cut and ribbon. I used my butterfly die/embossing set for my cuttlebug and then added some prisma glitter to the butterfly. I stamped my sentiment directly onto the ribbon. DP is CTMH's Magic Moments. 2 cocoa brads finished off the card.

I did notice that my paper is peeling up a bit on the corner with the brads. It was a last minute decision to add the brads and I'd already glued everything down. With a bit of prodding, I was able to loosen the paper and add the brads but apparently, I need to add a bit of extra tape now.

I hope you have a great Tuesday.

Great card!!! I love that you added the brads. They really finish off the card nicely. I hate when I have an afterthought like that and then don't realize the paper lifted up until I have taken the picture. lol Just a bit of tape and your card will be good as new. Thanks for joining us at TPE this week.
