Sssshh...not that I expect my cousin and brother-in-law to be reading this blog any time soon, but they have the same birthday and live in different states. So I make them the same card. Some day they will meet and my husband jokingly told me that my cousin will have saved all the cards I've ever made him and my brother-in-law will see them all! As soon as I saw Embellish Magazine's Color Challenge with Ric Rac of turquoise, brown, kraft, and orange, I thought I could make a masculine card with those colors. As I was dying the twill ribbon on the ink pads, and as my finger tips got darker and darker, I thought I was trying to stamp in a Tim Holtz style. What I forgot, nearing the end of this card, was that I had to incorporate ric rac too! Yikes! I learned how to make fake ric-rac with a scallop-edged punch which saved me here! If you get the chance to play, this contest runs through July 29th. Thanks for stopping by!
