An IBS Challenge - November Blog Hop

One of the challenges over at Inspired by Stamping
is their November Blog Hop which is to use Ribbon or Crochet Trim
The details are HERE.
I have intentions to make a few cards as I love using both.
For this card I went really cas. I recently purchased some beautiful ribbon
while visiting my sister. She had a quilting friend over from Scotland
and we went to a fabric store close by.
I can't resist lovely ribbon so made a small purchase.
This is what I made.
I used metallic sculptured card stock as my base and
textured paper behind the main top which was
embossed with cb textile folder which I inked lightly..
I tied the organza ribbon with shimmer embroidery thread
and added a flower from IBS
The sentiment is from IBS Vintage Dress Form here
inked with Rich Razzleberry by SU
Kaisercraft Pearls were added to the corner.
That is it for now but I am sure to be back with more
ribbon/crocket trimmed cards.

An IBS Challenge - #68

It is again time for me to create a card for one of the current Colour Challenges
 over at Inspired by Stamping

I wasn't sure of what the parchment colour was so googled it
and found it could be a tan colour. I do see a little of that
in the Inspiration Photo so that is what I went with
to match up with the others.
If I am incorrect at least I have made a card to add to my stash.
 And the one below is what I chose.
I started with basic white card stock the added leathergrain textured paper
 which I stamped randomly with a floral stamp and cut in strips.
Again I used the textured paper as a background for my bird image.
The focal flower is inked and has a little gold glitter added with a gel pen.
Added a bright sun near the bird.
Products I used
White and leathergrain card stock
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Bird Call
Spellbinders Circles/Lacy Circles
