Hello There!

Good morning everyone! Brenda here, with this weeks post. I hope you all are having a great week and everyone is getting settled into the routine of things. Now that school is back in, everything is a little hectic at first, then we get back into the groove of things.

Well anyway, on with this post and what I have created. Donna gave the design team a challenge with a sketch and certain colors to use. The colors are.............Yellow,Red Black Plaid with any bow type.

Recipe for card:

8 1/2  X 5 1/2 card stock folded to make a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 card base
4 X 5 1/4 black c/s with 5 1/2 side punched with scalloped eyelet
2 3/4 X 5 1/4 striped designer paper stamped with black plaid lines
layered with yellow ribbon on red ribbon attached to edge of black c/s layer
black c/s 3 1/4 X 2 1/4  layered with striped designer paper
attached to front of card then embellishments are are added
Spellbinder-Nest abilities-Labels Seventeen
Martha Stewart Star Burst punch
McGill flower punch
bling, bow and bottle cap flower center

Donna so graciously supplied us with all of the ribbon and the Recollection Bottle Caps.

I hope you have enjoyed checking out this creation as much as I have enjoyed creating it. I you have not purchased a Craft-Deebowz bow maker yet, please do so, it will make a world of difference at creating beautiful bows. I promise!

Thank you so much, for stopping by today. Hugs to all! Brenda

Brenda, I love your interpretation of the sketch! Great job with the perky stripes throughout and that was genius using the bottle cap with a sunburst. The black striped ribbon sets the entire project off with just the right touch. Wonderful.
