Crafty Ann's Challenge No 26

Here is the arrival of another fortnight at Crafty Ann's and a new challenge.  This fortnight the topic is an embellishment recipe:  use ribbon, gems and one or more embellishments made from paper/card.

I chose to do an 8x8 card and used two pieces of plain backing paper from my stash.  I then printed out two green-and-black papers from Crafty Ann's new green and black collection (lots of other colours and black collections in her store - go and have a look here), added these to the plain paper and then added a spotty ribbon (still not sure I like it but it's stuck down and there to stay).  Next I took Crafty Ann's pre-coloured poinsettia into My Craft Studio and just cropped the image and printed off a selection of sizes.  For the centre of the flowers I put in a deep blob of Glossy Accents and then added some yellow seed beads and left to dry overnight.    The card is then simply finished off with a sentiment off the computer, one of Crafty Ann's embellishment bows and some gems.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Ribbon Girl Challenge - Red and green
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything goes
Stamp Something - Use a digi (I have used digital papers, images and embellishments)
Bah! Humbug - Elegance.
