I thought, 'Cool' when I saw the challenge for this week. I immediately pulled out my Christmas paper since I'm still trying to get a jump on cards for this year. I know, I might be a little late to get a jump on Christmas cards, but snow hasn't fallen yet! I ended up not making a Christmas card at all, but I did use Christmas paper;
I think this is a pretty easy peasy card, but why did it take so long?!!!! I didn't like what I did with the sentiment first time around, so if the ribbon panel ever falls off, the recipient of this card will really be surprised! I stamped a flourish and the sentiment first time round and it looked awful. I turned the oval upside down, and whaddya know, a fresh place for the sentiment!
This is such lovely inspiration for today's inspiration challenge for this card; Moyna mother of pearl bag. They have some very cool bags at this site.
There's a schwack load of new faces on OCC, so take a little time to check out who they all are, and what they did for this challenge! Gorgeous stuff there.
