CAS Recipe

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the ladies at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight, Silvi has chosen our challenge and it is a recipe....  Are you ready for this?  Here it is!  The 3 ingredients are: Embossing, Ribbon, and Make Your Own Background.  Sounds fun, right?

I will have to admit that this was a bit of a challenge; after some thought I did come up with an idea for a CAS card.  First, I embossed a "frame" for my image panel.  Second, I created my own DP by using a text stamp then stamped over the top of it.  Third, I added a snippet of ribbon and a button for embellishing.  I used a 2-step stamping set from SU!...I had forgotten how fun it is to stamp in color!  I'll have to make sure to do more of that soon!

Stamps: SU! By Definition and Field Flowers 
Ink: Sahara Sand, Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, and Pear Pizazz
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Wisteria Wonder
Embellies: PTI Royal Velvet Button/DMC Floss, SU! Wisteria Wonder Ribbon
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's creations for this fun challenge.  You have 2 weeks to play along...I'd love to see what you do with this recipe!

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks: Dry Embossing
Polka Doodles: Make Your Own Background

Thank you for stopping by!
