Paper Crafts Magazine: Donelda's Turn

Here's my card based on Donelda's pick from the November/December 2010 issue of Paper Crafts magazine, Beth Opel's Rejoice card on p. 48:




Donelda told me she picked it both because it would be a bit of a creative stretch for both of us (um, yes) and because of the ribbon treatment on it. So I definitely wanted to try a similar ribbon style. I did delete a couple of the layers of the original card, because, well, I rarely do a lot of layers. I also don't do a lot of browns, so like yesterday, I went for red. I also used the same sentiment stamp as yesterday, but masked out the little poinsettia in the middle so I could use a circle of the patterned paper, instead. 
Can't wait to see what Donelda's come up with today, especially after her beautiful CASE (Copy and Share Everything) of my inspiration pick yesterday. You might also want to stop back here later today to discover the winner of my one-year-of-blogging blog candy winner! 


Supplies: Stampin' Up real red & very vanilla cardstock, (?) patterned paper, Hero Arts Joy stamp, Colorbox cranberry ink, clear embossing powder, Fiskar's threading water border punch, recycled ribbon, pop-dot tape Pin It Now!

WOW!! I love it! Your ribbon turned out so great ... and steals the show! And I think it is so "out of the box" to use the same sentiment as yesterday's card except a circle of dp for the 'o'. Awesome!! Thanks for the fun!

So gorgeous, Linds! I think you should use ribbon more and in this format, it flattens easily for mailing. No doubt, I love the embossed letters with the matching 'O' from the patterned paper!
