Cardstock only ... and a bit of ribbon...

Dutch Dare Challenge #19 says to us: "Cardstock only".

I had a hard time deciding if it means absolutely no other material/embellishment or it's only about not using DP. I probably should have asked :D.

My card is cardstock only... plus some ribbon and some small embellishments. Hope it qualifies ;)


Stamps: Flourishes are from TAC, flower(s) from SU and sentiment from Whiff of Joy - Heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
Cardstock, ribbon, ribbon embellishment: Romanian :) - the white CS is silver-y in real life.
The butterfly (peel-off) and the blue rhinestones were lying around.
[By the way... How do you call those? I know them as rhinestones because that's what is written on their package]

I have to say I am really pleased with the end result - and this is a statement I make very very rarely.

Thank you for visiting!

Ouuuu! How stunningly beautiful. I love your colour combo so fresh & elegant & that embossing is stunning. The butterfly and the buckle are SO sweet! And the way you did the ribbon. You are TOO good! :O) P.S. I call 'em gems but they're also called rhinestones. I wonder if I should call 'em rhinestones?

A little work of art in a card Mada and I love it! The flowers are gorgeous and so is the colour scheme, I love the glam of the buckle. I'm sorry you won't leave any comments, I'll miss them whatever they are LOL! I'd love it if you'd just say hello occasionally. Hugs, Chris x

Buna Mada,
foarte frumoasa felicitare, ai facut destule in cateva zile de cand nu te-am mai vizitat! Imi place foarte mult si cea cu feliile de tort!
Multumesc pentru comentariul tau, mi-a facut placere sa citesc ce-ai scris!
De ce nu mi-ai scris adresa ta, asa cum te rugasem? Ti-as mai trimite si eu cate ceva!
Astazi am primit si eu cateva stampile noi, abia astept sa le incerc! Numai cu timpul liber stau cam prost in ultima vreme! Faceam si cate 4 felicitari pe saptamana, acum abia daca fac una.
In sfarsit, mai vorbim. Ma duc sa gatesc repede. N-am chef, dar nici incotro nu am.
Mama ta se simte mai bine? Sper ca da.
te-am pupat, pe data viitoare
