PDCC45 and a giveaway

Happy Tuesday. I hope you all have a great Labor Day weekend. Mine is quiet, slow and nice. I get to craft a little bit which makes me happy. I have some good news to share. This sewing machine card is the SUPER 6 of Card Patterns Sketch 79. This owl card is the Fabulous Four of Wee Memories. WOOHOO~

Today I am sharing a card I made for The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC45. I've seen lots of crafters using doilies and wrinkle ribbon/ in their project. I've been wanted to give a try and finally make it happen. If you want to know how to make the wrinkle ribbon. Lynn has a great tutorial here.


Here is my card. The red pattern paper from DCWV Amber Autumn Fall stack Collection. I color the doily with Scattered Straw Distress ink and adhere on card base. Cut a slit on the side of the card and thread ribbon through the center. Adhere the cork with a scrip paper and die cut a scallop circle. Stamp sentiment ( -->Hero Arts CL283 Scroll Frame And Messages  ) with watermark ink and emboss with yellow embossing powder. Pop off the cork with foam tape. Adhere bows and roses.

Note:I adhere the cork on a scrip paper because the cork is woo thin and too soft. It makes it easier to pop off with foam tape.

Today I have a little giveaway. I got this giveaway idea from super talented and sweet Anita , Crafty Girl Designs. She has 5 small giveaways for 5 people to win and I really like the idea. I copy most of the rules from Anita because she pretty much got all the details covered. Thank you Anita for a great idea.
I LOVE this Rose Background cling stamp from Hero Arts. I use it to make this card. I have an extra on hand and want to share this with my blog friends.
