OCCC Challenge - You've Got Style

Wow, my second post today.  I guess this is what happens when the hubby leaves town!  I should be cleaning up, but who's going to notice - not the kids!  This card used Our Creative Corner's Sketch challenge.  I'm really liking the wide black satin I picked up at Hancock Fabric on clearance.  I should go back to see if they still have any left!
Stamps: Express Yourself (Verve)

Paper: Thoroughly Modern DSP, Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Burmuda Bay, White

Ink: Black, Rich Razzleberry

Accessories: CM Oval Patterns & CCS, Craft Knife, Rhinestones, Wide Black Satin Ribbon (non-su), Razzleberry ribbon, Black grograin, CB Swiss Dots Folder

Mojo123 - Superstar

Here's my first card made with Verve stamps. What a fun stamp set! I used Mojo 123 as my inspiration. The wide ribbon got a bit wonky. I tried to use my CHI iron to iron the wrinkles out of the ribbon and I think it was a bit too hot! Oops! I used a bit of glitter pen on the main image to high light. Hard to capture with the camera.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Wings of Friendship

A quick and simple card I made this morning.  I picked up the La Creme matstack last week at Hobby Lobby and just love the papers in it.  I also recently received the Wings of Friendship stamp set.  This paper and the image seemed to go nicely together.  Behind the 3 rows of vanilla ribbon is a 1 1/2 inch wide piece of satin black ribbon.  It adds a nice sheen to the card.  Thanks for taking a peak at my creation today!
