Hello There Crafty Friends!
I want to let you know that there's a challenge starting today at
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes
Here's my inspiration card...
Using the beautiful image 'Wild Roses
Here's what I used to make my card...
 Digistamp 'Wild Roses' By: SheepSki Designs
 Marco Raffine Colored Pencils
DCWV 4.5"X6.5" 'The Old World' Mat Stack
Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'Tea Die' 
Inkadinkado 'Personal Impressions' Stamp - Blog Candy From Mary H
We Are Memory Keepers Stamping Tool
 Prima Marketing Distressing Tool
Flatback Pearls - Gift From Friend
Offray Lace Ribbon 
Bow Maker - Made By My Hubby - Idea From A Mermaid's Crafts
Yellow Cardstock Paper

 Here's what I did to make my card...
 After cutting the patterned paper to fit the center of the card, I distressed around it, then taped it onto the card. Next I cut a piece of yellow paper to frame behind the image, distressed around it and taped it to the back of the image. Being it was my first time ever using the stamping tool, I had my crafty hubby stamp the sentiment on the image paper for me. I know, I'm a big chicken, worried I would goof it up, lol. If you only knew what I have done before with stamping a sentiment by hand, okay, I will tell you, I actually stamped it upside had to stamp it on a piece of paper, then cover the boo boo with the stamped paper, lol. I wasn't laughing at the time, lol. Okay, back to the card...I then taped the image on the card. Next I glued the ribbon on the bottom of the card, making it raised up three times. Then I glued some pearls on the places of ribbon that were glued down, two above the image and one above the sentiment. Using my wonderful bow maker, which is so much easier on my hands, I made a bow with the lace ribbon. Then I glued the bow onto the top left corner of the image.
And that's my DT card.
I hope you like it and it will give you some inspiration.

  1. Sherry, this card is just gorgeous!

  2. This is really pretty and I love your bow. I have one of those com type things and couldn't get on with it so I invested in one of those with the pegs to wrap your ribbon around. So much easier. Hugs Mrs A.

    1. Thank you so very much Mrs A.! It is a lot easier to make a bow with the wooden pegs/dowels. :)
