A few of my favorite things!

Judy challenged us to use some of our favorite things to create today. Well, that's exactly what I did. I love the Roses in Winter stamp set, my cuttlebug (especially the textile texture folder) and ribbon (especially heated organdy ribbon). For this creation I stamped my image several times onto very vanilla card stock and then overstamped it with the Fine Lace bg stamp. I then ran that layer through the cuttlebug with the textile texture folder and sponged around the edges. For the main flower, I stamped the image several times and cut it out, layering and molding each layer. I also used one of my favorite punches in the Martha Stewart line for some of the greenery. I used the mellow moss card stock and then sponged that with the always artichoke ink for a bit more dimension. The vanilla organdy ribbon was colored with my elegant eggplant marker and after tying into the bow, I heated it to make it curl (a favorite technique). It is very vintage looking, don't you think? That is another of my favorite things.

Thanks for looking! I appreciate you stopping by and leaving comments. I love to read them.

Pretty card with all of the "Karen" trademarks. Maybe if I get my room cleaned up I can stamp again next week. I've got all of those new stamps and haven't even broken them out, how sad!

Hi Karen, First of all, Happy New Year to you my friend. This card is simply scrumptous! It's just as gorgeous you are. I especially love all the different thing you did to the background. Truly a masterpiece! TFS this beauty.

Gasp Karen! I don't have much time today but I wanted to pop in and say "hi." I'm so glad I did because I might have missed telling you how absolutely gorgeous this is! Can't have that. Oh and BTW, can I somehow attach my SCS name to this for the challenge? he he. All my favs as well. Hm, great minds?
