Cool Cash

It's the first of the month so that means it's time for a new release from Doodle Pantry!  I'm working with a fun set called Cool Cash; the set includes outlines, pre-colored images, sentiments, and patterned/plain colored papers.

As I was working on this, I was thinking of the new Muppet movie...I had asked the kids if they wanted to go, but they declined.  I guess at ages 13 and 15 the Muppets may not be too appealing!  LOL  I really did want to go....  I went with a pre-colored image and one of the patterned papers; I was channeling Miss Piggy and decided that I needed to add some feminine touches...ribbon and pearls....  Just for fun!

Tip: Since the background paper is fairly dark, you could see it through the ribbon.  I simply adhered a piece of vanilla CS underneath the ribbon on the left side; there is no need to add any on the right since I gathered the ribbon.  It's an easy fix and it really does give the finished card a more polished look.  Take a peek at the photos below to see the difference.
