LOT's of CHALLENGES makes an elegant card!

TODAY'S Card is a tri fold card and is another one done to create fun things with the NEW Lace Ribbon Punch!!! Here I have made a frame with a floating center, and got the idea from the sketch over at The Sweetest Thing Blog. The center is actually held on the card by a few little left over areas that did not punch out of the frame. Now that is a mistake turned AWESOME!!!! It makes a pretty wedding card or in this case a Thank You card for a Friend that fits the requirements of the Frosted Designs and Paper Players challenges. I embossed the corners with Elegant Lines Embossing Folder from inspiration at the
Shabby Tea Room. The soft punch of color that I got from the Color Dare challenge of Tempting Turquoise and Pear Pizzaz adds some interst using the BLOWN GLASS TECHNIQUE and yet keeps the card elegant at the same time. I am really enjoying the Lace Ribbon Punch for all the different designs you can make to add some pizzaz to your cards. I even made a belly band to fold this card up neatly! I know you know that I will be showing a lot more ideas over the next few days. Have a good day everyone! Enjoy!
