Where is my creation, you may ask?
I've been STILL having printer issues, in spite
of having a relatively new printer...UGH!!!

PIP Challenge 2118

This week's sponsor is  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

Here's my project!
I love stretching my brain by using the
same set multiple times. This set from
CAS-ual Fridays has been a great set to
experiment with. This was embossed in
white on black cardstock. I colored the 
image using Spectrum Noir Metallic
markers. I added a shiny silver ribbon 
and bow and mounted the black onto
a metallic pattern background paper.
Add a few sequins and simply done. Took 
about 15 minutes to create and complete. 
My favorite kind!
