Sunny Challenges #9

I am leaving it late to enter this week - it has been a full week for me with family here which was so wonderful! I had lots of cuddles of my newest grand daughter who is five months old now - she is all smiles and is beautiful of course!

I am not at all happy with this card but I do like to enter the Sunny Challenge each week if I can. This is what happens when I leave things until the last minute - everything goes wrong! Now I see I did not use the ribbon how the sketch showed it - damn!! The challenge this week was to use the given sketch and have some heat embossing on the card!

I again used the Beau Chateau DSP and heat embossed the image with black embossing powder.
The base card is Sahara Sand and the sentiment is stamped on the same.

Stamps: Elements of Style and Four Frames
Card: Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Beau Chateau DSP
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron
Other: Black Satin ribbon, Marina Mist taffeta ribbon, Black embossing powder, Decorative Label punch and pearls

Actually, I like this card alot because it has a wonderful Victorian look and feel to it. I think it is beautiful. I also don't agree with you that you used the ribbon incorrectly. I looked at the sketch and I think your ribbon treatment is right on spot. Hope you are well! Best, Curt
