JOY...and a shameless CASE

I was inspired by Darnell's cards using wide printed ribbon such as HERE & HERE. Finally yesterday I actually hunted down my bag of similar ribbons I bought over 10 years ago.  I did use them on cards at the time, but none since then.  I need some flat cards to mail overseas & wanted to enter the current challenges at Flourishes, Freshly Made SketchesPixie's Crafty Workshop & Curtain Call. This is one of my favorite Flourishes stamps & I colored it with 2 shades of green & red Distress Markers, added Stickles, gold dot stickers & a row of hand stitching. Thank you, Darnell, for giving me the inspiration I needed & thanks to all of you for your continued encouragement I so appreciate!

  4. OMGORGEOUS! Your inspiration comes from Darnell, but your "Greta" flair is most certainly evident. Stunning! A few my current "Top 5 cards by Greta" will need to shift over, as elegant beauty is moving in...I think to #1 spot! The ribbon and your stylized *joy* are perfect complements. Wow...and again, wowwowowowowow! LOVE this!

  7. This is indeed beautiful. The flourish stamp is superb and what a masterpiece to put just the one line of stitching across the top. That ribbon is also to die for! Hugs Mrs a.
