Compose a Card #4

Oh my goodness - I started this card last week right after Becky released the challenge...here it is almost a week later and I just finished it. Life just got in the way! Not to mention I've been ill all weekend long! URGH!

Before I show the card, today my dear sweet hubby and I are celebrating 18 years of marriage - WOW; what a blessing!!

OK, on to the card! I didn't have a negative stamp - can you imagine, I thought I had EVERYTHING in my stamp room; but alas, not a negative stamp. So, I did the next best thing...stamped white on black. LOL

I added some Hibiscus Burst to the card as I'm using this as a birthday card for a friend. I didn't have any olive satin ribbon either, so instead I took some white satin ribbon and died it with my Ripe Avocado stamp pad from PTI. Worked like a charm!

Thanks for stopping by; Becky will release a new challenge tomorrow and this week she has a "theme" running all week long - what fun! Hope you get a chance to check it out. Hugs, ~M.
