April Showers

Wish it was showers we was getting but like earlier in the week we are getting more snow starting tomorrow according to the weatherbug news. I'll take the April Showers.
This is another creation for two reasons. 1. Chrissy's Belli Challenge #12. 2. A sketch challenge from Jen del Muro from Please take some time and check out Chrissy's blog and Jen's blog. Both are very talented lady's. And go ahead and take the challenges they both have going.
I used some of my scraps and a image I had stamped and colored in already but didn't know what to do with yet. Well both of these challenges made this card come to life.

Supplies used:
Read Red, Whisper White, Basic black card stock
Gamsol and colored Pencils
3 Black eyelets
Dotted Swiss Embossing Folder
Black Ribbon with white lines
Black Stazon Ink Pad
Stamp set of choice

Cut main card with Whisper White at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 fold in half to get your card at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Cut Real Red card stock at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 add to main card front.
Cut Whisper White card stock at 4 x 5 1/4 and run though with embossing folder. Use punch for corners and mount to front of card on the Real Red.
Stamp image on Whisper White with Stazon Black ink. Color in with Gamsol and colored pencils (Gamsol Magic). Trim down to 2 1/2 x 3 1/8. Cut Real Red at 2 3/4 x 4 1/8. Add image to upper half. Measure and put in eyelets with the crop-a-dile, just under image. Then add ribbon to the bottom. Layer this on a piece of black card stock that measures 2 7/8 x 4 4/8. Mount this in the center of the card and your finished. Very simple but cute card.
Hope you enjoy today's project and be sure to take the challenges on both Chrissy's and Jen's blogs.
