10 Minute Challenge for February 26

If you haven't been following the blooming love story between Mr. Nasty and Madame Vilaine you're missing out on a real "tick tock time" J Head on over to the blogs by Carole'Anne and Sandi and see what's been happening. While you're there why not join in on the weekly 10 minute challenge.  This week it's a sketch: 

I decided on Rose Red for the base of the card, Taken with Teal and Black Cardstock for the squares and the Fresh Cuts set for the images. 

Punched out 3 - 1 3/8" squares in Black and 3 - 1 1/4" squares in Taken With Teal. Got out some gold embossing and stamped 2 of the images from Fresh Cuts.  Using one of the same images I grabbed some scraps of Rose Red and ramdomly stamped it with Taken With Teal. Headed to the Big Shot counter and ran the Wings Embosslit twice for the butterfly.  Applied the butterflies with Tomboy to 2 round clear buttons. A challenge for me is what to do with ribbon. I layed a piece of Black Satin Ribbon using Sticky Strip. Beforehand I folded the ends together and gave them a snip. Then folded a small piece with Sticky Strip horizontally and another vertically around it. Used the Crop-A-Dile to make a hole in the center and inserted a brad from the Circle Ice Rhinestone Brad collection. And there you have it, fait accompli.

A la prochaine!
