Inspired by the IBC...

This little card was inspired by the picture on the bottom of page 34 of the current Stampin' Up! Australia - New Zealand Idea Book and Catalogue:

The colours are Baja Blue, Kraft, Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery. I have also used a crimper, Pink Pirouette Striped Grosgrain, Scallop Edge punch, Scalloped Circle punch, Round Metal Edge Tag, Rub-Ons, On Board Lots of Letters Chipboard, Crystal Effects, Sticky Strip, SNAIL, Mini Glue Dots and Dimensionals.

I have coloured the chipboard with Baja Blue ink using a sponge dauber, and then I have painted Crystal Effects on using a paint brush. I have sealed the ends of the bow by holding it near a candle flame...this prevents it fraying.

I really love this colour looks so fresh and pretty!

Thanks for dropping by,

Beautiful card Sam and I love your perfect bow!! I am envious LOL!! Yes wasnt that a great tip that we learnt at Convention about burning the ribbon ends to stop fraying!
