I'm as usual late for this challenge. I'm posting it on the last day..better late than never. So this week, the challenge was to use faux embellishments, ribbon, button, brads, stitches sorting thru my stash of stamps, I found that I had a bow, a distress ribbon and a whole set of faux stitches. What's the fun of using a set designed to be a faux embellishment?
So I went outside the box..I love it when I think outside the box and what I have in my head, literally comes out on paper..

This card is pretty self explanatory. Colored it with watercolor pencils..And this time, there is no glitter on it. :(

And then I couldn't stop at one, so I had to make another one. This time the idea was outside the box, and I wanted that idea within a box. I could kill myself with such funny statements!!!

Anyhow, I had this scalloped stitch, and when I layered it, it looked like water. And then I remembered a fish stamp I had gotten in a swap, don't know the name of company, but its from Netherlands I think. And together, it made the best card ever.

Again not much to say about the card, watercolor pencils and sentiment from Stampin bella (blog candy). Borders with Sharpie
Wouldn't you say its fabulous! I do..I love how it turned out.
Another challenge done. Waiting for the next one Susan!
Wont' be able to do the next two, going two weeks to my parents place! :D

These two cards also go in for the CWC004-one layer cards.

That's all for today folks, see ya around!
