If any of you read my post two days ago I was hoping for a snow day to stay home, play and make some cards, it didn't happen. But to my surprise I turned on the tv when I got up yesterday to get ready for school and it was canceled! I guess with all the strong winds and rain many people were without power, so they canceled school! This card is what I played with and finished.
I bought this DP on a whim at Michaels one day a couple of weeks ago. It was a 6x6 pack and all the paper is glittered. Not the normal colors that I would buy but it definitely caught my eye. Turns out it also matched Primas that I bought at one of the stamping conventions that I went to last Spring and had never used. The sketch had a strip down the side and so I wanted to do something different besides just running the ribbon straight down so I used glue dots and made it ripple like ribbon candy. It looks a lot better in real life than in the pic, does add dimension to the card. Where I was making a get well card I wanted a bit of elegance so I used a lot of pearls on it also. It took me most of the day to finish it because I kept changing things on it but in the end I was happy with it.
These are the challenges that it fits
