Papercraft Star Sketch & Ribbon Accent

Happy Saturday afternoon....hope your weekend is going well. I have been to the grocery and did some laundry, so I thought I would take some me time and post this card that I made yesterday for a challenge at Papercraft Star . I follow their blog, but this will be my first time playing along with them.


This is the sketch for this week. I used stamps from some of my Stampin' Up retired sets that I don't use often enough. It is a shame to have such beautiful images sitting idle. I punched several borders, using a punch by Martha Stewart and layered to create my band. The flower soft is something else that I have used very little since buying it and I do love the look it gives to a card. My ribbon accent is something I am trying for the first time after getting a lesson on this gorgeous idea from my friend Renee and she has been generous enough to post a tutorial here so that you can see how she creates her beautiful accents. Mine does not do justice to the beautiful ones she has made, but don't think I won't try again.lol I love this idea! So stop by and check out Renee as well as the blog challenge site for Papercraft Star....you have until Sunday night at 9PM to enter your card and then the voting by our peers begins.

Your bow turned out GREAT! Sorry I haven't been around lately...busy with kids stuff mostly. I'm WAY behind on visiting friends blogs and making any comments both DT or personal. I love the green ribbon you used and the button/brad? in the center is gorgeous!! I love the layering of the border punch too. Your card is very pretty!
