Seeing Stripes with The Crafty Pad!

Sunday Evening again! 
and the weekend is about to wrap up:(

Don't frown! Instead, take the challenge and get creative with
The Crafty Pad this week and show us some ...
STRIPES

This week I have been playing with The Crafty Pad Designs Fathers Day Rosette digital image! I would have to say this image is the most versatile image in all my stash! You can do so much with it! If you're not in the 'Fathers Day' mood but have another round sentiment in mind it is so easy to mask over and pop the new one in place and still have the ribbon tail! .  You can make actual ribbon rosettes following this tutorial here made by Debbie, (I used the 2nd rosette in her tutorial today).  You can make rosettes to embellish your cards and projects with and for that extra special KaZing add a safety pin behind it so it can be worn by the lucky recipient as well!

I love images that can be used in a variety of ways, I always feel I am getting more 'bang for my buck' and you sure do with this little beauty!  And if your in a hurry there is a pre-colored and non colored image! Now you can't get any better that that!. 

So... wanna see my ribbon rosette creation this week that I cooked up with some STRIPES?




There is not 'much' to this card as the embellishments kind of say it all.  I added a touch of distressing to the whole card and layers with some inks, the star is an embossing stencil that I cut out and then inked up.  The pin prick swirl under the sentiment from Gingers House has been done by free hand and highlighted with some green pearls. The green stripe ribbon is from a blog candy I won and the brown stitching one is from my fav stash.  The red gathered ribbon is from my new things and the paper is from the no other pretty pretty Prima! (So LOVE their paper)!
