TGIF Challenge - 107: Grunge-y Get Better...

WHOOO!!!  It's FRIDAY!!!!  (I've needed Friday all week!!!  Haha.)  That means TGIF Challenge time!!!!!


A theme this week!!!  Make a get well or sympathy card.  I am so thankful for this challenge cause I have, sadly, needed to make a few of these kinds of cards lately.  So this challenge will help me get caught up on these kinds of cards that aren't so fun to make, but can make a big difference.  And that's what I love about doing this...the difference a handmade card can make.  So play along with this challenge!  Can't wait to see what you do!  Head over HERE to the challenge blog!!!

BUT BEFORE YOU GO...here is my card that I made...


Can we talk for a moment about how SAD i am that my fave stamp set is retiring?!  Do you own Gorgeous Grunge yet?!  If not...get it now before it's gone!  I LOVE all the texture you can quickly and easily add to any project!

ColorsSmoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black
Cardstock/Papers: Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Basic Black, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Stamps: Butterfly Basics, A Dozen Thoughts (JUST SAW THIS WAS ALREADY RETIRED!!! SO SORRY!)
Tools: Bitty Butterfly Punch, Triple Banner Punch
Accessories: Silver Satin Ribbon, Bermuda Bay Twine, Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon, Delicate White Doilies

This card was so quick and easy to make.  Just stamp your background, add some embellishments and greeting, and you're basically done!  Love cards like that!  ***TIP:  I wanted a thick ribbon but didn't have any in the color I wanted.  So that Silver Satin ribbon (GORGEOUS!)...I just added two strips of it around the card and then the Flirty Flamingo ribbon in the middle to cover up the seam.  Voila!  Can't even tell!!!




Thanks so much for visiting!  Hope you enjoy!  Can't wait to see what you make for the challenge.  Let me know if you have any questions!
