Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Hello Everyone

As promised I am back with yesterdays image all made up... I must admit... it took me a while to find just the right off cuts to finish this card... but we eventually got there...

I am playing with Simon Says Challenge this week and used the tic tac toe: Ribbons, Free (glitter) and Blooms.

The base card is white as usual, layered with some yellow patterned paper which I edged slightly with worn lipstick distress ink - in hindsight it was a bit too bright, but what done is done.

Punched the edge of the stripe off cut and layered it on the left of the card together with a strip of white lace. overlaid that with my yellow and pink ribbon.. a lucky find in my stash... and finally added my image on foam tape, which I die cut into a circle and added a pink layer using my nestibility S4-115.

To finish of course we cannot forget the bling.. some flowers with pearls, glossy accents with glitter on the flower and the bee's wings and just plain old glossy accents to accent the petals of the flowers.

Oh yes the sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx black and edged just with the left over ink on my distress sponge and cut into banner style.

thanks for visiting...

have a stampendous weekend
