This month marks my final month with the Show us your stuff challenge blog, I decided to not reapply for the second term. This month we were sent some lovely goodies from Bibby's lovely shop .
The challenge is to use ribbons, lace or trims on your project and to describe how you have used it. I decided to create a card using Bibby's handmade flower. I have attached it to my card so it is hanging off the edge for a fun effect and used some velvet ribbon to hide the join between the two pattern papers.
I would also like to share a mothers day card I made for the Scrapware blog this month, love the bright happy colours.
Till next time...

Lilredrocket buttons. To create the circles first I punched out 5 circles from the card stock and to add some interest punched 3 circles from some co-ordinating pattern paper.Then I grabbed four different embossing folders and embossed the circles in my cuttlebug. Finally I used some sand paper and sanded over the embossed edges and around the edges of the circles. When I put my layout together I raised some circles with pop dots to add depth and interest.For my final layout I decided to use some Jenni Bowlin studio vintage brights collection cardstock, It matched my school theme perfectly. I used my sand paper to distress the letters and numbers that were already embossed on the cardstock.I also added some cosmo cricket woodgrain collection and core essentials cardstock which I sanded with my sand paper.I added some clear acrylic letters over some of the embossed letters to highlight them. To create the raw distressed edges of my cardstock, I used my scissors and quite vigorously rubbed up and down against the edges, I didn't mind if parts of my cardstock ripped either. Till next time...Don't you just love that truck button from
