Dream Valley - Ribbon and Bling

Happy Sunday everyone!

It's such a wonderfully sunny day here in Rotherham it really feels like spring is on its way and i love it.

Thankfully Cherry is feeling so much better today... she's even managed to play with her scratch post a little so i'm feeling loads better.

Today see's the start of a new challenge over at Dream Valley and this time we would like to see Ribbon and Bling on your project (Must use both).

Our sponsor this time is:

Prize - Bev bag selection

This time (due to a slight miscalculation lol) you will have 3 whole weeks to get your entry in.

So here's what I did

I used something I have never used before..... a paper craft kit from Crafters Companion!!!  This is the Gorgeous Angelica and friends.

Now I never ever buy paper kits but this one came free with the CDRom and stamps I bought and for all i think it's lovely, i dont think this type of crafting is really my thing... it sort of felt like cheating if you get me lol.

I used a card blank for "whichcraft" this is also a first for me and I found it really difficult not using my "safe" square card!

Thee only thing extra I added was Mirror Card (another thing I never use), some ribbon from my stash and some gems.

I'm not sure how I feel about this card .... I hope you like it.

I'm off now to prepare the Sunday lunch, I may be back up later with another card (more in my "Safe" style)

Catch you later.
