Hey, man I'm alive...I'm takin' each day and night at a time...I'm feelin' like a Monday, but someday I'll be Saturday night...

Happy Sunday, y'all! I hope you all are having a great weekend and enjoying today. It's getting close to the Anni-VERVE-sary release...this Friday is the day! We're gearing up with sneak previews all week...be sure to check out the full list of who has peeks to share at the bottom of this post and leave a little love as you hop around the blogosphere for a chance to win today's sets!


Here's the card I created using Fabulous You and Basic Grey Capella papers:


I wanted to go with a more subdued color combination with this card, and the Cappella line fit the bill perfectly. Can you believe that this is the first time I've cut into my 6x6 paper pad?? *eek*

Instructions:
1. Cut and fold cream card base to 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" square.
2. Stamp frame with brown ink & sentiment in green ink.
3. Trim around frame and set aside.
4. Spray cream silk ribbon with brown Glimmer Mist to stain. Set with heat gun & set aside to dry.
5. Cut patterned base layer and mat with cream cardstock.
6. Add strip of another pattern, punched with scalloped edger punch.
7. Wrap strip of brown silk ribbon around scalloped strip and base layer. Adhere ends to back.
8. Add pearl/bling flourish to bottom right corner.
9. Mat main focal image with another layer of cream cardstock and adhere to card base with foam dimensionals.
10. Tie bow with remaining brown silk ribbon, above focal panel.
11. Adhere small flower to center of bow.
12. Adhere card layers to base with foam dimensionals.

And here's a close-up of the frame and sentiment:


I hope you've enjoyed my card today. I'm headed to take an eensie nap...gearing up for another HOT week of football practice! Just to give you an idea, it was 92* last night when I went to bed at 11:30. NO JOKE! Last I heard, we were at about 19 days in a row over 100 degrees. August in Texas is brutal for sure! I think I should visit Colorado...*sigh*

Your card is gorgous. I love the brown it is so elegant. Thanks so much for your directions. I wish more people would do that. For alot of new card makers it is very helpful and it makes card making not so intimidating. I remember the first few cards I tried to copy was awful. So thanks for taking the time to give directions and sharing with us.
