Girls Club Card

In addition to the brag book in this post, we will also be making this card during Saturday's Girls Club workshop:


You know that bright colors are out of my normal comfort zone, but I really like these two colors paired up! This is Taken With Teal & Real Red along with some Basic Black for outlines and Whisper White. I knew I wanted to use this swirly paper from the Bali Breeze DSP pack, so I picked the ladybug from Garden Whimsy to give meaning to the "trail". I guess I could've also used a bee, but then I wouldn't have been able to use the beautiful Real Red wide grosgrain ribbon! I was going to use the narrow ribbon, but once I layed the wide on here, there was no turning back!

Speaking of wide grosgrain, that's going to be my next Ribbon Share! I haven't set the date yet of when I will place the order, but it will most likely be around the first week of March. So if you're interested, you can let me know now and I'll add you to the list. It will be approximately 3 yards each of 8 different colors for $16.50. I'll have a more "formal" announcement later, but thought you'd maybe like to get a jump on the offer. :) Edited to add: I mistakenly had the price listed at $16 and will honor that for those who have already contacted me. But the correct price is $16.50.

Anyway, back to this card... the sentiment also comes from Garden Whimsy and is stamped directly onto the base card with Basic Black ink. Then I randomly stamped the pair of bugs from the same set using Versamark ink. I used the Scallop Circle punch, along with the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle punches to frame the ladybug.

Simple to make... with a dynamite impression! If you haven't signed your daughter up for Girls Club (this Saturday at 2pm), there are still a few seats available - contact me now to reserve your spot! ...and stay tuned - I have one more Girls Club project that we'll make!

How cute is this? I LOVE these colors together. I never would have thought to use them either. Thanks so much for sharing! I finally got the Garden Whimsy set and I think it is wonderful! :D
