While I still intend to do all that (and I did get started today), I couldn't resist putting together this card for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I've never done one of her challenges before but I've seen some of the beautiful cards that other folks have done for them.
Anyway...here's my contribution. I've had these little velvet flowers for months and haven't used them yet so this was a good excuse. I also used up some scraps so I can say I was "tidying up".
Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzil, Crate Paper), parchment paper, velvet flower (Imaginsce), ribbon (various), Stamps (SU!), glass pebble (Michaels), Bella Baubles, tools (Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestabilities)
