OH!!!! My CARD! You want to know more about my card! K. I can do that for you. Well, it was created using the fabulous Uplifting set from Skipping Stones. The ribbon and some of the lace is May Arts. I hand dyed the turquoise ribbon to make it the perfect color! I used some fabulous stickers from Pink Paislee, wonderful vintage buttons, some Melissa Francis paper, and a wonderfully fun Martha punch. I sorta went to town on this one. Just say'n.

The color inspiration came from the WONDERFUL challenge over at CR84FN Color Challenge for this week! I love it!

Have a Happy FRIDAY!!!!!
