Hello!

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by.  Today I'm sharing a fun card that I made this week.  My color choices all stemmed from the ribbon.  It's one of those $1 rolls of ribbon from Michaels that I picked up over the summer.  I love the colors so that was my inspiration for the card.
There is no stamping here.  Those are SU rub-ons.  I embellished it with olivine green Swarovski crystals, flat backed pearls and a couple of "cheapy" big blue rhinestones that I found in the Michaels $1 bin.   
Here's the inside.  I picked up a Martha Stewart border punch with a coupon this past weekend and it's my first one.  Now I know why everyone loves them so much.  It adds a really fun element to this card.
One last look at the front.  I wish I could capture the sparkle of this card better in my photographs.  In real life it really pops and sparkles.  I need to work on my photography in general actually.  If you have any tips for me on improving my photos, please leave me a comment.  I would be eternally grateful for any good advice!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

No Stamps?! It's beautiful and so is that ribbon. Like all your little "bling" and that punched border does add so much to it. Like yesterday's blue and brown creation, too. I'm very fond of brown. Looking forward to whatever you share next, Tara.
