Ribbon Rock

Hi there!  Today was a public holiday in Bermuda where most people fly kites (see this post for the background on that).  Unfortunately there was a wild north wind which was not at all conducive to kite flying and I only saw two all day.  Normally everywhere you look in the sky you can see them so it was a bit of a bummer.  After taking Atti for a quick swim I hightailed it to the Craft Cave and got some cards done.  I wanted to play along with the latest Runway Inspired Challenge before it was too late.  I was inspired by the glittery question mark and the pink, satin skirt.  I've had these glittery K & Co letters for years and the satin ribbon I laid behind the die cut letters has been kicking around for a while too so I feel good about making use of some neglected stash. I'm also going to play along with Simon Says Stamps' Anything Goes challenge.  

Tomorrow I'm hoping for a big chunk of time in the Craft Cave since Luis and our neighbour will be busy in the yard.  Some of the plants in the hedge that divides our properties have died off so they're going to be pulling them out and replanting.  I did offer my assistance but I'm guessing they'll be happier without me getting in the way.  I'll just bring them a beer now and then and call my job done!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Basic Black)  Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Block Alphabet) Papertrey Ink
Chipboard: (Glittered Twinkle Type) K & Co
Gems:  Michaels
Ribbon:  Craft supply

This card is totally AWESOME, Jen!! I'm calling this one a winner. Wow! Enjoy your time crafting! I think beer duty is a great contribution to the hedge renovation. :-)

What Michelle said, Jen! Your RIC is a winner in my book, too!! Have an awesome day in the Cave of Crafts!!

Jenny said...

I really expect to see this card in the winners post.... It's brilliant!!! The big glittery 'U' is a real show stopper.
Leaving the guys to it sounds like a plan to me :0)
Have a great weekend Jen :0)

Yeah to lots of craft times and boo to the poor weather. I loved your post from last year. This photo rocks it! Love your take on the inspiration!

Now that's my kind of yardwork - beer fetching. THAT I can do.
I totally love the shimmer & shine on this card - and perfect way to use one of those HUGE chipboard letters. I would use mine more if they weren't so darn BIG!

Awesome card! Very stylish, which is appropriate for the challenge, of course. :)
