Tied UP!

I just love it when things happen by accident but seem to turn out fabulous don't you? That's exactly what happened with today's post! I know I've used KennyK's Devastatia recently but she is just so sassy and easy to work with! And as I said earlier this came about completely by accident!

So, what do you think? Basically I was working on creating the crossing of the ribbon for just a simple card and then it hit me! She seemed like such a perfect fit! I can't remember who the black polka dot paper is from but I embossed it with d'vine swirls. Then I measured out the distance between the eyelets, set them with my Crop-a-dile and laced the ribbon through the eyelets. After that I very carefully slid her underneath the ribbon and used pop dots to attach the top portion of her to the paper.

For the sentiment I used some glitter alphas that I picked up back at Christmas and for the first time in forever I cut the backing paper using some fiskars edging scissors. I have to say that I am very pleased with the way she turned out! Thanks so much for looking & happy crafting!
