I did this card as a part of advertising for a drive to earn money for Alzheimer's Foundation. It was organized by Cammie at My Blog. She illustrates and designs for Gina K Designs. All of the money from set will go to the foundation. I am entering it in to this challenge to maybe give others ideas and also not to forget her charity drive.
I stamped the image and then painted it with watercolors. I have the details of where I got the design for the punched lace edge on 'the blog'. The background behind it was embossed and then punched with the lace punch. The background behind that was embossed too. The background behind that was not. I laced the ribbon through and then tied it in a knot. A thread was pulled on the ends of the grosgrain to get the straw look. A bow was tied and mounted. There is more information on 'the blog' and also a link to Cammie's blog:
