Three cheers for Jerry at Computer.com! My computer is fixed and better than ever!!! Luckily it was the power supply and not something terrible like the hard drive. While my computer was in the shop I had some memory added! It is running faster than ever-not too bad for a four-year-old computer!
The inspiration for this card came here from Carrie at Carrie Stamps. I changed the colors but the idea and layout are basically the same.
I have been trying different ways to color ribbon. This is the white taffeta which has been colored with Stampin' Pastels using a dauber. The color is not as intense as using a marker but it is easy and you don't have to wait for the ribbon to dry. The background is a piece of solid Not Quite Navy DSP from the hostess pack. I texturzed it with the Big Shot and then sanded it.
I did discover something new. Sanding blocks can be washed!! Yep! My sanding block was stained with Not Quite Navy after making this card so I put it under running water, added a little Palmolive dish soap and Tah Dah! A clean sanding block!!! It does take quite some time to dry, probably a day or so!
The card base is Sage Shadow.The flowers were some silk flowers I had that I also colored with Apricot Appeal Stampin' Pastels and a dauber. The sentiment is from a retired SU set.
Off to make some swaps that are due tomorrow night!! I am going to ride the roller coasters tomorrow at Worlds of Fun. The weather is supposed to be beautiful!!!
