well done

Hi everyone! Today I'm leaving on a jet plane for not-so-sunny California, baby! CHA is waiting for me as well as most of the fabulous Baker's Dozen!  I'm so excited to meet these women in real life - I need time to go faster!!  haha!  Since I'm pre-posting my blog for the next week, I'm going to show you a little portion of my Dirty Dozen projects.  This card is so fun and cheery - turquoise and red are quite possible the 2 happiest colors to put together!  I love this combo!  This card is from the August Fan Club gallery at Splitcoaststampers and is actually part of a tutorial I did on making these wonderful button bows.

See you back soon!

recipe -
paper: real red, tempting turquoise, whisper white card stock, east coast prep dsp
accessories: runway stickers (american crafts), horizontal slit punch, scallop edge punch, real red 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, latte designer buttons, embroidery thread, mini glue dots, card sayings rub-ons (making memories), circle & circle scallop nestabilities
