Creative Elements Step It Up Swap - Take 2

On Monday, I showed you a card I made for a swap on Stampin' Addicts: Creative Elements Step It Up Swap- Take 1.   I promised to show you the "Stepped Up" version of the card today. Drum roll please:

Colors: Baja Breeze, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla.  Stamps: Creative Elements and Delightful Dozen. Big Shot: Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Punches: Decorative Label and Large Oval, Scallop Circle.  Accessories: Pearl Basic Jewels and Basic Gray Satin Ribbon.
I wanted to add some texture to the card so I ran it through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and added a ruffly ribbon treatment.  For the ribbon, I applied a sticky adhesive tape to the ribbon and to the card where the ribbon would go.  Then I started applying it at the bottom and just kind of pinched and gathered it as I went and wrapped the other end around the layer of the card.

Isn't that a fun idea for a swap?  I have one more set of these cards to share with you next week.   In the mean time, happy stamping!

Great color combo, Paula! Love how you put the scallop circle and decorative label together to mat the sentiment.
