This card is for today's Ways to Use It Challenge - to use a charm. It's also for the 2RedBananas challenge for the week - to 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.' You can find the challenge here: http://2redbananas.blogspot.com/2009...uce-reuse.html. My charm came on another item and I've had it for over a year, waiting for an opportunity to use it! I've also had the Amuse orange ribbon for over a year.
The embossed background was done with a Sizzix texture plate. (I always mist my paper before embossing for a deeper impression.) I punched the bottom border with an EK Success punch, and sponged the edges with Only Orange ink. The charm is tied on with the orange ribbon. I crocheted a flower to match (with embroidery floss that I've had for YEARS!!) and added a pearl to the center. THe sentiment is from All Occasions and is stamped in Only Orange.
