Charisma Cardz #22, Colour Throwdown #45 and 2Red Bananas

As I have mentioned in my last couple of posts, I am in desperate need of Thank You cards! This card was inspired by Charisma Cardz Challenge #22 to use Pink and Brown. Incidentally, I also used a light green for the leaves which make this card also eligible for the Colour Throwdown #45 this week. I have already made a card for the Throwdown but I think I will link this one up too...just to share. 2Red Bananas is also challenging us to use ribbon!!I used my Martha Stewart Lace Border punch for the side of the card and borrowed the oval punches from my friend Glenda. It is my hostess month for my Stampin' Up group and I ordered these punches and some other great stuff. I am so excited and cannot wait for it to all come in!!

The stamp is called Peony Panel by Stampendous. I just picked it up last night with my pal Jane. She wanted to see what I would make with it so I had a bit of a challenge from her too!!! Thanks Jane!

The ribbon is from Walmart (chocolate satin) and the image is coloured with my copics. The ivory background is cuttlebugged with the french script embossing folder...I love that folder!! Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day!! I am going to spend today cleaning my craft room and doing laundry!! Oh I may have to try the OCC Sketch Challenge too!!
