Embellishment Swap

Hi! Happy Sunday. It's a gorgeous day here in West Virginia. The leaves are turning wonderful shades of yellow, orange and red!

OK - the latest swap (due) was hosted by Vanessa. She did a favorite embellishment swap, where you use your flowers, ribbons, brads, glitter, etc. I took it to mean that the embellishment should serve as the focal point. After failing miserably on trying to make the ribbon my main focus, I went with making it a great accent. I love blue and chocolate brown together! It's been my color combo of choice lately! Here's the card I created. BTW, this is my creative fold of choice lately, too. I hope you like this card as much as I do.

I used chocolate chip as the base and bashful blue. Take Three is a set I've had for a year and it's hardly seen ink! Then I used a real vintage tool! I got out my Clouds decorative edge scissors - and this awesome edge came quite by accident. I cut my cardstock crooked! So I used those scissors and viola! fixed and it looks great!! I used diamond stickles for the flower centers. Then finally the embellishment. I used this super yummy, so rich chocolate satin ribbon. I love it! I am definitely going to have to buy more!!! I originally bought it to do some decorative thing with my bath towels in my bathroom. The ribbon hasn't see a towel yet.

OK - y'all... blog candy. I mentioned it and I haven't forgotten about it. I've put it on the back burner for a moment. I've seen something new (new to me) and I'm giving it a test drive. If I like it, I'll be sharing it. Stay tuned.

Have a great rest of your weekend.
