Tiime To Follow Your Heart ~ Ribbon Girl January Challenge

Hello Everyone!

Long time no see. Sorry for being absent for such a long time.
I have changed my job in December, back to working full-time.
Nice thing is I am learning new things every day and getting to know new faces.
The only draw-back is I have less time to craft now :^(.
Once I get used to my new schedule, I shall be able to craft more. 

Today I have a new creation to share with you, a DT card for the
first 2014 challenge at The Ribbon Girl Challenge Blog.
The theme is ~ Anything Goes.

One of my goals this year is to make cards
and creations with different styles of stamps and techniques.
I made a shabby tag card using the January tag inspiration
from 12 Tags of 2014 at Tim Holtz Blog.


 The photo stampe image is Maribel from Stempelglede.
I have stamped it on white cardstock instead of glossy cardstock for a matted look.

I lightly textured the DP with white embossing paste and TH Bubbles stencil.
I top-stitched and distressed all DP edges with distressing tool and DI.
I diecut and embossed a couple of metal gears and stained them following
the technique described in the TH Blog for Jan's tag post.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Store:
White seam binding ribbon, natural and brown button twines, tiny key charm,
Gutermann white top stitching thread, WOC pale pink lily flowers,
13mm Olivia white Cluny lace, 25mm white fine Cluny lace,
3mm pale pink pearl bead string.

DPs: MajaDesign Vintage Frost and Vintage Summer Basics.
Dies and punches: Tim Holtz, Memory Box, Spellbinders, and SU.
Embossing folders and stencil: Cuttle Bugs, SU, and Time Holtz.
Other materials: SU rub-ons, game spinner, library clip and safety pin.

You can see all the gorgeous DT creations at The Ribbon Girl Challenge Blog.
We would love you to join in the fun creating and win this fabulous prize:
Prima Park Bench & Bridge Set, White Mixed Dahlias to colour yourself,
1m of flat back ivory pearl square trim and 10 aurora borealis hearts

Prima Treasures Garden Bench & Bridge Mixed Dahlia White (to colour yourself)
10mm Ivory Pearl Square Trim 10 Aurora Borealis crystal hearts

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely week!
See you next Sunday for my next creation.


I wish to enter this tag card in the following challenges:
