Happy Friday! I took off last week to get my younger daughter Kelsey moved into her dorm at the University of Kentucky and will be taking my older daughter Amanda to George Mason University this weekend. How did they get to be college-aged so fast?!? At least I still have my son Brandon at home so I'm not quite an empty nester yet!! Moving on, this week Karla tasked us with creating our Fabulous Friday projects using a new bundle from the Annual catalog over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. I chose to use the Ribbon of Courage bundle in honor of my Mom who started Chemotherapy today. Teal is the ribbon color for Ovarian cancer and is why I chose to use Bermuda Bay as the main color for my card. In addition, I used the new In Color Powder Pink along with neutrals Early Espresso and Whisper White.
Does this card look familiar? I CASE'd my Fabulous Friday card that I created back in June. I didn't own the framelits yet (the stamp set was one I won at a Stampin' Up! event in April) so wasn't able to add this fun little ribbon cut out in the bottom corner. I also heat embossed the stamped ribbon image before I cut it out with the Big Shot and ribbon framelit. While I was using my Big Shot I decided to add some texture to the Powder Pink card stock piece using the new Garden Trellis textured impressions folder.
It's always great when you can bring a little bit of the outside of the card inside. For this one I stamped the main ribbon image (stamped off) along with another sentiment from the stamp set for this card. I love how this turned out!
Here's another view of my card. For even more bundle inspiration please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
