Bordering on Wonder

This was another of my “challenge yourself” cards.  The only thing I didn’t have with me when I made it was the ribbon.  It uses the Bordering on Romance set from the Stampin’ Up! catalog with Wisteria Wonder ribbon.

Stamps:  Bordering on Romance; Ink:  Jet Black StazOn; watercolor wonder crayons; Paper:  Whisper White; Other:  Big Shot, Petals a-plenty embossing folder, Wisteria Wonder Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, 2-way glue pen

I stamped the image in the center of the Whisper White layer, then embossed  all but the center using a cardboard mask.  Then I stamped the flowers two more times, colored them, cut them out and added them to the card with stampin’ dimensionals.  Finally the ribbon and glitter – done!  To be totally honest, this isn’t Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  It’s retired fine glitter that I had at the office.  But it’s easy to do the same thing with Dazzling Diamonds or with Dazzling Details and ink refill.

It was miserably hot today – and humid.  Mike and I had a few errands to run, and we (meaning I) decided it would be nice to stop at McDonald’s for a cone.  I found out they have dipped cones now.  They dip the cone into a hot chocolate coating that hardens when it touches the ice cream.  It’s wonderful, but probably not the best choice on a day when the temps reach 100 degrees.  I had to lick quickly to keep from wearing it – but it was wonderful!

Tomorrow I’m off to the Great American Scrapbooking Convention with Sandy & Liz.  It’s going to be a blast!

Have a wonderful day – and thanks for stopping by.
