Good Morning everyone!

With all the very late nights I've been having lately and the Hanna Stamps release party last night, I needed a bit of a night off (even though I still ended up in bed after midnight!) from coloring, so I played around with some paper and just one stamp. And here's what I came up with:

A pretty card with a huge bow on it! :) Actually, the bow was added on purpose. I {heart} papers is having a wide ribbon challenge that I only just found out about yesterday evening. It actually worked out perfect because the sketch I wanted to play with last night was this week's 2 Sketches 4 You layout and it 'tied' in beautifully! (Pun intended!) hehehe

I pulled out some MME paper and matching Bazzil cardstock, then sponged the orange pieces with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. Then I machine stitched around each panel and layered them with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the There She Goes 'Bloom' set and I found that delicious ribbon a while back in the clearance bin at Michaels. :) Wide ribbon always makes any card that much more elegant, don't you think?

I should have some new Nestibilities in my mailbox tonight! Hoping to play with them when I get home from work. :) Hope you get some stamping in tonight too!

Toodles!
