I was over at Made by Momo looking at the challenge that she has going on right now. Momo's challenge was to make a card 'just because'. The first thing that came to my mind was to send a card to my Grandpa and Grandma. I decided that I wanted to let them know how grateful I am to have them in my life; I love being the oldest (and I think favorite) grandchild. My Grandparents' house is surrounded by trees, and this time of year the leaves on all of the trees would be changing; I always loved the colors!!!! While creating this card I found Card Creations & More by C; she has a challenge going on right now. Her challenge is to use ribbon and bling. PERFECT!!!!!
I tried a new method I'd seen for the ribbon. I usually just leave it flat, but I've seen quite a few people layering it like I did. I like it a lot! :) The phrase and the cut out leaf are from Gypsy Wanderings. I used the shadow of the cut out leaf duplicated it, flipped it and welded it together to create the shape card. I put the orange piece of paper behind the patterned one through my Cuttlebug and then painted it with a little glitter paint. I, of course, added a little bit of bling. :)
