Busy being fabulous

Wow  ,  I love this paper but it's hard on the eyes . It would be lovely to have the space and the money to have ribbons ,buttons and ric rac in every colour but it's just not possible ,I wanted black ric rac and had to use some ink to dye this yellow stuff. The large stars are cut by hand and a star punch for the small ones.I love this stamp but trying to get a perfect image is not easy -I had 8 attempts before I was happy .

Tuesday Morning Sketches -  challenge  201 - Sketch layout .
Charisma Cardz - challenge 22 - lots of layers
Southern Girls - Tic Tac Toe  -I've gone right down the middle -  inks ,stars and chevrons .

Solid stamps are a challenge, for sure, but you did a great one!! Good idea to ink the ric rac!!
Thanks for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Wonderful card....great colours. Why have I not thought to colour my ric rac before. I only have three colours. Thanks for your tip.

I really really like this card! The image is just gorgeous!
If you haven't tried it, I recommend you stamp this image with your cardstock on top of a phone book etc. It really helps not having a hard surface underneath. :)

Thanks so much for joining the Southern Girls!
