IBSIC - Squee!

Maybe it's early (it is), but since that rhymed I had to go with it :) I was so honoured & excited to be chosen as the winner in last week's sketch challenge, and can't wait to be a guest designer for a future challenge! I love the gorgeous projects IBSIC has to share every week & love playing along...and it doesn't hurt that Tammy's sweet as sugar either :)

Here's my card for this week's challenge:
Supplies: paper from K & Co;
sentiment from Stampendous;
Peeled Paint distress ink;
Sakura Stardust glitter pen;
stick pins from Little Yellow Bicycle;
ribbon from Offray;
oval pearls from stash
My ribbon flower is not only inspired by the pattern on the container, but by Tammy's tutorial on tissue paper flowers. The stick pins reminded me of the knitting needles tucked into the yarn. Here's the inspiration photo:

Beautiful, right? The IBSIC challenge is open until Wednesday night, so you've got some time left to play - I'll be back tomorrow with some more to share. Apparently I'm going to overload you before I'm away & down to a paltry 3 posts a week, lol!

xoxo,
Jessi
