The challenge on Crafty Secrets for 12-16-08 was to use at least 3 "B" items on your project. I used a border, a bow, there was a boo boo which I covered with a button. Three "b"s and a cute card....doesn't get any better than that in my world!
Aren't these little guys cute. I colored them with copic markers. I punched them out with my scalloped square punch and sponged the edges with blue bayou stampin up ink.
I trimmed around the edge of the border to show the scalloped detail. I sponged with the blue bayou ink as well. I attached the border just a little above the bottom edge to let the blue background show underneath. I tied a blue ribbon bow above the scalloped edge. I had dyed the ribbon a few weeks ago with SU reinkers.
I found buttons in my button stash and added teal emboidery floss. My little card was complete. I left the inside blank so that I could send it for an occassion when one arose or I will just hoard it as usual.
Thanks for looking and have a great night.
Gotta go finish my project for my Artistic Outpost posting tomorrow. My designated day to upload projects is Wednesday on the Artistic Outpost blog.
