SAF Challenge #3

What a day it's been.  Of the first seven challenges I checked out, an entry for Challenge #3 is really the only one that came together easily.  Funny, the last one I tried, is the only one worth blogging.  Nichole & Heather challenged all of us PTI junkies to combine punches and ribbon to create an interesting card front.  Since, my punch box is heavy (and SO messy), I used my trusty Mat Stack 3 die for the opening. 

 Supplies (All PTI unless otherwise noted.)
Paper:  Hibiscus Burst, Rustic Cream, and In Bloom (print)
Stamps:  Daydreamer and Fillable Frames #1
Inks: blue, dark green, and black (Jenni Bowlin),
light green and purple (Memento)
Other:  sponge daubers, satin ribbon (SU)

Even though the official contest closes tonight, be sure to drop by Nichole's blog to check out all of the Stamp-A-Faire challenges.  These challenges definitely give the mojo a good old-fashioned jump start.  Thanks Nichole for the inspiration as always.  And thanks blog-friends for dropping by!

So pretty! I also like the ribbon at the bottom instead of the side. Beautifully done.

Wow. This is so pretty. The MS has made a well suited aperture. Gorgeous and a real "must try".

LOVE this card! The colors are great and you are right, what could ever be wrong when you use a Mat Stack 3 die? THANKS for sharing!
