retrosketches challenge #22

This card I've made for the challenge at retrosketches blog -

It was also inspired by the post @ Whiff of Joy -

 The ribbon with the button on the right serves also as a closure system (with little magnets attached both to ribbon and the front panel of the card).

The card uses:
Simple Stories Fabulous 6x6 paper pack
Fizzy Moon Celebrations Little Messages clear stamps
Distress inks in Vintage Photo and Old Paper

Take care,

Cards for M&M

As soon as I've read this article I knew I wanted to make something too. It doesn't cost me much and can make someone's day a bit brighter.
The idea for a card came to me instantly.

 Fun, colorful, shiny.

I've added clear glitter to the sun and something like perfect pearls to the background to make it shine and shimmer. Done a bit 3D paper piecing to make the card more interesting.

Other supplies I used:
- Paper Smooches free digital stamps ( - LOVE them!
- Letraset Promarkers
- Glossy Accents by Ranger
- Doodlebug Beetle Black Medium Rub-ons

Maddy, Melanie - my warm thoughts are with you. Fight!
