Hello stampers! My card today is for the new color challenge at StampTV. I used the daisy flower/vase from Purrr-fectly Delightful.
this week's challenge are Bubblegum Pink, Black Onyx and White. We would love to have you join us and you could win a free Gina K stamp set.
I cut an oval using Oval Nestabilities and using my new Grand Calibur die cutting machine! That's right, Christmas came early this year. Yippy! While the paper was still in the die, I sponged Memento Angel Pink ink and then sponged just a tiny bit of Memento Rose Bud, just around the edges. I didn't want the pink of the background to compete with the pink flowers, so I kept it light.
I knew I wanted my ribbon to be under my oval, but pop out under the image, so I went ahead and layered the scallop oval, cut from Pure Luxury Black Onyx, and adhered it. Then I cut a slit in the background and put one end of the ribbon through it.
So why did I go to all the trouble of adding my ribbon this way? I knew right where I wanted my bow and I couldn't quite fit it off to the side of the oval. This way the bow was tied right on the edge of the oval.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend!
