Character Cafe: Rhinestones, Ribbon & Red

Again this is a first. I've never entered the Character Cafe Challenge before. See what happens when school lets out for the summer?? When I heard that the challenge was Red Rhinestones & Ribbon (or some such combination of those words) I knew the image and the papers to use!

This is a Bugaboo image colored with Copic Markers. The lime/strawberry paper was in a K&Co pack from last year. The red/white dotted is the reverse side. The ribbon is from Michael's. What would we do without Michael's $1 bin of ribbons?? The larger red crystal brads are from the Christmas Collection and the smaller are red crystals purchased in a red/clear/blue pack for last 4th of July. (Now do you understand why I am spending hours this week organizing my scrap room??)  I didn't add a sentiment on this card yet. I'll wait to see what I use it for. It may remain blank as a note card to my aunt, or it may be a summer birthday card or a cheerful Get Well card.

Hi Mary - thanks for the visit... Cute image you've coloured up here... had a quick look and love that your cards are not samey samey like a lot of blogs - you have an eclectic style like me!

look forward to getting to know you girls more on Phindy's place.
