This week at the Stampin' B's Design Team challenge #121, Faith is our hostess and the challenge is to use ribbon on our card. I am using a soft, white ribbon and added a pretty button.
Do I ever love these poppies from Mark's Finest Papers! The set is called Poppies, Poppies, Poppies and it stamps so pretty.
I added some sponging around my image with Memento New Sprout ink and it really makes the image pop, don't you think?
I've added a vine, some brads, and used a punch around the page called double loop by Martha Stewart.
My card is also for this month's SCS Dirty Dozen challenge. The central theme: Star Spangled-use stars, stripes, or polka dots.

You already know how I feel about this SPECTACULAR card from the comment I made on your blog. It is a STUNNER. I LOVE the colors, the vibrancy, loop punch, vine diecut and fabulous bow treatment. You must really be getting good use out of the lighted magnifying glass I sent you. Keep it up!

This is so delightful Benzi - all the punching and die cuts and those absolutely stunning flowers (which you colored to perfection). Love the vivid colors on this card. Amazing creation. Bama-hugz to you - football season is almost upon us!
