Use It Challenge #4

So, this weeks challenge on the USE IT! blog, was a little bit more difficult for me. First, I have been eyeing up this paper and love the complete brightness of it, but it is way out of my comfort zone. I am not a brights person, I love jewel tones.

So: use scraps of any kind, punches or die cuts, 2 or more different ribbons, and 1 or more embellishments that you once loved and haven't used for a long time.....

Let's see: scraps: well, this paper is actually the 3rd card I made using these papers, so I am counting them as scraps and the thin pink ribbon (had less than 12" left of it!). Punches: broke out my new nesties for this! Ribbon: by my count, I used 4 different ones. Embellishments? Well, that was more tricky since I only buy what I use. However, I love prima flowers and have had a stash of them from a long time ago and rarely use them- I tend to do more "classic" cards, not fun and flashy, so this was a great card to pull them out for. Cupcake was a digi image, which is the first time for me to use and I love how my icing turned out! Used my stick glue pen, outlined the icing and sprinkled my absolute fave product- Prisma Glitter (from CTMH). For something different on the card, I cut off 1" of the right side of the card and lined the inside edge with a scrap of green cardstock (see it a little on the right??)

Thanks again USE IT! and to Judy L for the choices of stash products to use-

Have a great morning and check back again, I did 2 more challenges that I am going to post!!!
