FBD loves ribbons and bows!




Happy Wednesday!  Wednesdays =  a brand new Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge for the week!   And the DT brings you another delightful cache of paper goodness!   Heather, the sweet owner + designer of FBD, gave us a wonderful challenge to use ribbons and bows.

For my card, I'm using Vine Cross, a beautiful image created by Heather.  This lovely image will soon be available at FBD so keep checking for it!    I was in the need of a cross for a dear friend of mine that treasures everything "crosses and angels" and the moment I saw this one, I knew it was perfect :)   Although the paper is brighter than what the image might call for, my friend's favorite color is orange so I paired it up with blue sky and orange (kinda like a Florida card! LOL!)  Lastly, did you see I played with the Tattered Angels again?  I tell ya, this stuff is messy and moody!  It's so neat and beautifully done if you know what you're doing - clearly I do not, rofl, but it only took me one try this time!  Overall, I'd say the jury is still out on this TA unless I take a class or learn from the pros ;)

Blessings to you!   Be sure to check out the Challenge Blog and play along and  see the DT's yummi cards and REMEMBER - the NEW RELEASE blog hop is right around the corner, March 1st!   Stay tuned!!  x0x0

Blessings!
~Kelly

  6. Great card! I love the brightness - It was a glorious day when HE died for us, so the papers do not need to be somber!

    My luck with sprays is hit or miss - I just made my cell brown b/c my Smooch sprayed everywhere!!

  15. Kelly, this is gorgeous! The color combo is unbelievably beautiful and I really think it is such an unexpected, fresh mix with the image. Look at you rockin' the Tattered Angels again! *woot woot* The trim and the flower are simply perfect. I'm certain your friend will treasure this beauty. After seeing one of your creations "in person", I know the photos don't even come close to doing your card justice. Hugs to you, my friend! :)
