Twisted Thursday challenge!

Hello there! Today is another Twisted Thursday challenge on Karolyn's blog Paper Therapy! I decided to get this one out of the way so that I can focus on my swaps this weekend. As well as this week's MFT Judge's challenge! We have to frame something!!! Eeeekkk!!!! What in the world will I come up with???!!!! I'm definitely going to have to sleep on this one!
Anyway, back to Twisted Thursday!
I was going through my Stampin' Up! designer paper earlier today for the card I made below, and I came across the Bella Blue designer paper. I don't remember buying this!!!! But, somehow it made its way to my collection! I decided to make use of some of it and make a card!
The colors in this paper are Kraft, Very Vanilla and Not Quite Navy. I really like Not Quite Navy! I think it's a really cool color! So, I was even more excited to work with this!
For the last MFT challenge, we had to make 1 layer cards. So, I was definitely putting on the layers on this baby! Another "twist" to this challenge was that we had to use ribbon. So, I decided to use lace, thread, and Very Vanilla Taffeta ribbon. I hand stitched the designer paper w/ beige thread. And then I used the Pretties Kit for the hat pin and jewels and pearls. For the sentiment panel, the words are from Kitchen Sink Stamps Other Imnportant People. I stamped the words in Not Quite Navy. Then, I took one of the stamps from Garden Silhouettes, and stamped it in Sahara Sand, and then highlighted the tips of the flowers w/ my white gel pen.
And that's it!
Happy Stamping!!!
