I was finally able to complete this card that has been haunting me as my mojo just wouldn't come. I don't know that the proper balance is there since the ribbon is larger than I thought it would be and the image smaller, but there you go.
I was determined to use SU pool party which I've never used - last years in color at that. I paired it with chocolate chip. Both panels are different sides of the pool party dsp, but you might not be able to tell from the photo.
I stamped the large doiley on the dp and heat embossed it. I then stamped another doiley from the stamp set and heat embossed that too - popped it up on dimensionals.
I paper pieced 2 panels, used a border punch under the image panel and made a double loop ribbon with a flower I had on hand. The button on the doiley was in my stash. I added some little scallop lace at the top to, of course, add to the doiley effect!
Thanks so much for taking a look and I hope to be able to catch up on all my commenting soon.

Pamzi, Sis, this is beautiful! Stunning even! I love the balance on this - so many pretty details and eye-candy. Mojo is spilling out all over this one. I am particularily drawn to that big gem in the middle as I iz drawn to sparkly thingz you know! It looks remarkably like it could fit a spy camera though! I hope whoever getz it iz smart enough to check it carefully with some kind of scanner or something!!!!
Seriously, this is beautiful in every way and shows off your showstopping style wonderfully.
Miss ya, love ya!! Hugz!!!
