I am participating in a new challenge
(for me), over at Just Us Girls
but when I saw this elegant
color combo I wanted to participate.
It's black, cream, and kraft.
How can you go wrong with such
elegance I ask?
I have been hoarding this paper for months, but
I decided to finally use it! I just LURVE it!
It's by Jillibean Soup called Black Macaroni.
I now wish I would have bought more!
We are so limited in Hawaii with supplies.
I thought an elegant card called for
an elegant stamp, so I used my
I added some black Rhinestones to the Crest.
I created a ruffled ribbon at the bottom
of course adding rhinestones for
a nice finishing touch!
I stamped a running Happy Birthday border across my
card panel and popped my crest up with foam mounting tape.
Thanks for taking a peek today!
Edited Note: Many have asked how to make
this ruffled ribbon. I learned this technique a
long time ago using sticy strip and "scrunch" style
but I am going to share a link with you that
Paulina, at DeNami Designs, shared with me
that is much easier. Please check it out here!
Nami makes it look so easy.
