Monogram Card


Here is my challenge card for Midnight Madness Challenge #19 and for Tuesday Morning Sketches (which the challenge was to use ribbon. I used the sketch provided, and pulled out lots of embellies that I had forgotten about! I used the oval frame from Tattered Angels, and misted it with coffee shop. The crown and fleur-di-lis are also from Tattered Angels and were misted with pink ice and coffee shop. The rectangular frame was cut with the scalloped rectangles nestabilities and embossed in the Moroccan screen cuttlebug folder. I wove ribbons for the backgound of the oval frame, stamped,embossed and colored the "c" stamp from Technique Tuesday, added a few primas, pearls and ribbons, and was finally finished!
