The Greatest Gift

I am so glad it is Friday.  It has been a long week hasn't it?  Today Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring several challenges.  I made this card combining two of them.  The first challenge is Chocolate, Coffee and Cards and their challenge is a recipe...1 ribbon, 2 DPs and 3 flowers.  The second challenge is Brown Sugar Challenges "You Have Me In Stitches".  I added the stitches to the ribbon and at the bottom of the card.  I used a floral border punch to make my 3 flowers.  I also added a gem to the middle of each flower.

The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I am in their ribbon of the month club.  This ribbon just came yesterday.  It was a beautiful pack this month.  The base of the card  is just plain white cardstock and I ran it through my Big Shot with a snowflake embossing folder.  The gorgeous image is from SSD, of course, and I colored her with Copics.  I cut her out and popped her up on SU dimensionals.  I also added glitter glue to her bow.  I used a Martha Stewart punch on the sides of the DP.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.

Brown Sugar #19 - You have me in stitches

Is it just my eyes or is she supposed to be pregnant? This is just adorable. You're right, that ribbon is gorgeous. I love all the little details you put into this. Great job.
