For my TSG Float My Boat Blog Hop post, please click HERE. Thanks!

I've got an evening card tonight! Pretty incredible, considering that I'm in the middle of a very busy time, and finished it this evening, along with tomorrow's TSG Blog Hop sample and a CASE Study card. Now I've got a TON of scheduling to make, but before I get into the tedious bits, I wanted to show you the said little creation.
(Oh noes! NO stamping involved!)

Supplies: cardstock: American Crafts (black), recycled kraft; paper/label: My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found - Union Square); transparencies: Glitz Design (Laced With Grace); pearls: AnnaBelle Stamps; border punch: EK Success; sewing machine; organza ribbon; button; seam binding

I haven't made my own embellies for TOO long (I admit it, I'm lazy), so I decided it's time to kick myself in the butt and found the current CARDS blog challenge a perfect excuse. Paige is asking for gathered ribbon flowers, and I picked some red organza to make mine. It's really quite quick to make and pretty easy, so here's to hoping that I won't forget about this technique :)

The sketch that I used is VLVJul2011 Week 4. True to Chupa style, a perfectly free take.

Also, since it happens to meet the criteria, I'm linking this one into OCC's "All the B's" challenge (black, button, bling, bow)
I hope you'll have a fabulous day... see you tomorrow!


  1. lovely, and to be honest, I actually giggled when you said oh noes... it is some thing my little sister and I say all the time :)

  2. Very FABULOUS!! Love the DPs and the ribbon and the ribbon flower it just too awesome.

  3. I think you use of color of this challenge is very pretty. I too have started making my own embellishments. And your gathered ribbon flower looks professional! thank you for playing along with us @ OCC

  4. I love this so much- the scallops across the bottom, the stripes, the stitching, the sentiment, and of course, all the Bs! Thanks for playing along with us again at Our Creative Corner!
