Embellish Challenge

Good morning, hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!  A group of us went out dancing last night.  A local band was playing at a sports bar up the street.  I will very rarely pass up a chance to dance (not that I'm very good!)

Now...on to my card!  I haven't used Elegant Eggplant in a really long time for a card...and it is such a pretty rich looking color!  To make this card, I used an extra large Martha Stewart border punch, stitched two layers of ribbon and off we went.  The stamps are from PaperTrey Ink with a little extra touch of twine!

Hope you enjoy my card!  Thanks to Embellish Magazine for the challenge inspiration!  I'm off to run outside for the first time for my 1/2 marathon training...I'm so thankful not to be running on the treadmill!


  1. love that big border punch!! And the twine is a great texture :) Very bold and classy card :) How's your friend doing? and her mom?
