Cheers to You

First of all, if you haven't already, be sure to comment on -->this post<-- to win some blog candy! There are a couple ways to get extra entries, so be sure to increase your luck!

Now, onto today's card. As I was browsing my usual blogs, I was struck by this card on Dawn McVey's blog. I absolutely LOVE Dawn's work, and knew I wanted to case that card!

On the OCC blog, today's challenge is to use the emboss resist tutorial. So I decided to give that a try.
Like the bow? I've seen it popping up here and there, and wanted to give it a try. I attached the ribbon around the card, and then attached the bow separately. I used redline tape to put it together. I wish I had the 5/8" SU ribbon in Tempting Turqouise, but had to make do with the 1/4".

Not much else to explain here. I blew the dust off of my Colorbox Fluid Chalk inks. Aren't the colours gorgeous? The ink is so creamy, it just glides on. I just swiped it right across my embossed flowers, and buffed it off. Easy peasy card. The clear rhinestones sparkle it up!

Stamps: In the Spotlight, Lots of Thoughts (SU)
Paper: Whisper White (SU)
Ink: Blue Lagoon, Dark Peony, Lime Pastel (Colorbox), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: 1 1/4" circle punch, ribbon (SU), rhinestones (Kaiser), clear embossing powder (stampcraft)

I'll be back later with another post about my crafts room: spotlight on punch storage!
