FCD Ribbon Frame Card



I made this card almost a month ago, but I couldn't share it until now!! I was asked to be the April guest designer for Firecracker Designs by Pamela, and this was one of my creations using the beautiful set Primrose. In addition, it was using a technique challenge from SCS called TLC212 Ribbon frame. Here is a link to the tutorial on how to do this technique...it is so much easier than I thought, especially with a Scor-Pal (I love this tool more and more each day!) I've had a ball having my creations featured over at Pamela's blog, so if you get a chance, check it out here. Whoa, that's a serious bunch of hyperlinks!!

I actually used an aqua painter with my Rich Regals watercolor crayons to color in the image. I wanted to keep the card simple to not only highlight the stamp, but also to show off the ribbon frame. Sometimes, less really is more! I hope you enjoyed stopping by today!

On a side note, please look on the left hand column on my blog for some awesome blog candy that my friend Heather is giving away. It is truly for an awesome cause--to benefit research for Cystic Fibrosis. A dear friend of hers is dealing with this in her own home. Check it out...it's some seriously awesome candy!!
