Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Lace or Ribbon

I am excited, beyond belief, to share with each of you that I was recently invited to join the Design Team at Fashionable Stamping! This is my very first opportunity to be on a Design Team, and I am absolutely honored to be working with some of the most talented artists/designers I have ever met.

The latest challenge at Fashionable Stamping is Lace or Ribbon. The weather in my part of the world has turned very fall-like and I really think it influenced my earth-toned card. I began with a white card base. I softened the edges with some Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. My images are from the Fashion Flappers plate by Artistic Outpost and were colored with Copic Markers and distressed with Antique Linen and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. My lace is hem binding and the ribbon is by Martha Stewart. The beautiful vintage button was a gift from a friend. To complete my card, I added some copper liquid pearls.

I hope you will join us at Fashionable Stamping for the Lace or Ribbon Challenge. Please remember that Fashionable Stamping is purely a stamping challenge, therefore, no Digis allowed. Please check their blog for complete details! Also, you will want to stop over to see all the beautiful inspiration pieces from the Design Team and meet the other newest members as well. My best to everyone. Yvonne

Hi Yvonne,
What a beautiful card, those colours are amazing together! Love it. I had never heard of a "flapper" before, these days there are probably a few that are somewhat older than 19! lol
