Thanks, Dirty Girls and Jenn for these daily challenges...I'm leaving for a trip tomorrow and am squeezing as many in as I can! Love what you do for us in the Fan Club and thanks for the encouragement and inspiration through your creativity and comments to our galleries!
Kristi's card today actually covers two challenges...Jody's ribbon and Jenn's brocade cake. I admit I have a time with ribbon...it's not the first thing I consider when I begin to design a card, but for today, I'm thinking like the RIBBON QUEEN!!!
I love this slice of cake from Impression Obsession. It looks brocade to me with the patterned layers. I inked it in Archival jet black and embossed in clear. It is cut and place on that awesome Judikins butlers' tray, which was also inked in black embossing the tray in silver. I used my ATG to lay it flat against the card base, while the cake is popped up on foam. The dainty paper liner is colored with cool shadow (COPIC) and the cherry is Copics as well. I added a ruby jeweled brad (RED is your favorite color, right Kristi?!) The postmark is from Purple Onion Designs way cool set. stamped in ColorBox Dragonfly Black. The sentiment is the Flourish cake set inked as above. The cardbase is from MME Kaleidoscope. And to JODY'S ribbon, love the black and white checks. Just the icing on the cake...ooops I meant card.
Oh, Happy Birthday, Kristi...I have fun stuff for you over across the street...I've been collecting and well...you know! It's also an important day for me...tis a year ago I created my very first CARD...a birthday wish for my neighbor, Kristi. I was petrified...REALLY.
Thanks for looking and I'd love to know what you think!
