Elzybells DT Challenge!

Good morning friends! I hope you're all having a good Thursday thus far! Only one day until the weekend...yea!! My weekend is actually staring today, my husband, little ruby and I are making a quick trip to SLC today to spend a special evening with all of my family! I am the 8th of 9 children and it will be so wonderful to be with everyone(we're all over the country) for a couple of days! I've got the details all worked our for my son and daughter, who are over the moon excited to have a "sleepover"....hope all goes well!!

Today is a fun day, it's Elzybells DT challenge day! We're at challenge #42, our challenge was to use only Kraft paper on our card, no patterned papers of any sort. I thought it was a great challenge and enjoyed it! BUT, it was a challenge not to reach for some patterned paper....I won't kid you there!
I started out by stamping one of my favorite blooms from the Floral Fervour stamp set with some Strawberry Fool ink. I stamped it a couple of times on the base of my card, just so you get a little sneak peek of it. Then I ran a layer of my kraft c/s through the Big Shot and embossed it with my Swiss Dots embossing folder. I wrapped this layer with some Riding Hood Red ribbon from SU, and then mounted the layer on my card with dimensional adhesive. I used a bit of tulle(just grabbed a bundle of it, tied it up with some twine and added it with some glue dots under my knot of my bow. The button I used is from the Whipped Cream collection. I used another piece of kraft and stamped my flower one more time, then added my sentiment, with Whipped Cream ink. The sentiment comes from the Tags-floral circle stamp set.
