I created this card for several of last weeks challenges:  Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, Splitcoaststampers Way To Use it Challenge and the CPS Sketch.

I started by picking paper from the MME Lost & Found 2 Breeze paper pack so it would fit the Way to use it challenge (use newsprint paper).  A lighter blue paper was cut  embossed with a Grand Classic Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded. It was cut down so it would be stitched t0 a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the Largest Lattice Rectangle die.

The newsprint patterned paper measures 4″ x 5 1/4″. The top two corners were rounded and the edges were sanded before the lattice layers were adhered. A 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ strip of another pattern from the same paper pack was adhered over the lattice layers and May Arts White Organdy Ribbon was tied around those.  The bow was topped with a Basic Grey button that was tied on with Embroidery floss.

A piece of Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with one of the Fancy Tag 2 dies. The tag was sponged with  Scattered Straw Distress ink and a sentiment from Sweet ‘n Sassy’s Wildflower stamp set was stamped in it’s center with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Part of the Wildflower image was stamped over the panel while the die was still on it to create more interest.

Parts of a brown Finesse Rhinestone swirl were adhered above the bow and underneath a flower cluster to finish off the card.

Your next stop on the hop is Janice Melton, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this party train:
