Raspberry Fizz Swirls, Butterflies...and Bling

I wanted to just play with no agenda, so I pulled out my favorite background stamp I haven't used in a while and stamped it in Raspberry Fizz onto Papertrey White cardstock. I tied a the pink ribbon around it and matted it onto Raspberry Fizz cardstock. I lot of my favorite cell phone bling and some punched butterflies from Raspberry Fizz patterned paper...and a little more bling and this is what I got. I think it's kinda cute. Tuesday, when I checked K's Card Creations blog, guess what the Tackle It Tuesday challenge was. It was to use your favorite background stamp to make a card. That is quite the coincidence, I think. So, does it qualify as a challenge if you have just made a card that fulfills the requirements of a challenge before actually reading about the challenge? That's a mouthful. I am in one of those really strange moods right now.

Hey, guess what! I just found out I am on the design team for KLM Designs! I am super duper excited! KLM Designs is a brand new digital stamp company. The owners are a mother/daughter duo--a super talented mother/daughter duo. I am so excited to be a part of their brand new endeavor. Be sure to stop by and check them out.

Have a great day!

This is beautiful Karen! The ribbon goes so well with the raspberry fizz. I've decided to start taking my PTI swatch book with me when I go to the craft stores so I can match ribbon to it.
