~THANK YOU~ Use a Digi and Ribbon - 3 Girl JAM Challenge

HELLO Sweet Blends
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I  have lists upon lists in front of me at all times.  One would think, I would be "On The Ball" a little more than I was today.  I inadvertently missed my scheduled posting day at the 3 Girl JAM Challenge Blog.
Thank goodness Julie doesn't like to see head's roll, because mine would have went for one heck of ride!
My apologies for missing my deadline.

The UP SIDE to my Blunder?
I was forced to stop everything I was doing and make some time to play in my craftroom!!

A midst all the exciting things that are in full swing with the Pinque Peacock Blog and the Pinque Peacock Shop, my crafting time for fun is few and far between.  So, I am thankful for the "push" of motivation Julie offered me to post for 3 Girl JAM today.

I have had this wonderful Digital Coloring Page from an artist I admire a lot.  It is called "Sapphire Night" by Carissa Rose Art.  She is so talented and self taught.  Quite an inspiration for any Newbie Artist that is trying their hand at dabbling in new forms of expression.  I happen to be lucky enough to own one of her Original Pieces along with some new Prints that I just recently added to my collection.
So, my card is a Tribute "Thank You" to Carissa, to let her know, Her Art makes me quite Happy!

I printed the image on kraft cardstock and colored it using my Prisma Color Pencils.  I fussy cut around the edge to give the image more depth against the background of Gold (Co'ordinations Pearls) and Purple (from my stash) card stock.  I used a corner punch on the purple mat.  I used my Peacock feather Embossing Folder on the gold mat.  Another hand punch to place behind my small flower and a corner punch on the sentiment tag.  Sentiment is by Unity Stamp Co. (inked and heat embossed).

The large and small flowers on my card are Elegant Florals which I have handmade using the Ever So WONDERFUL 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon.
 The large flower is a Loop de Loop using Gold Crown and Dress White.

The small flower is a Pleated Petal using Sterling Silver.  I simply added a bit of Purple and Gold Ink to distress the ribbon a bit.  This ribbon has so many possibilities.  It really is a MUST HAVE for your Crafty Stash.  A little bit goes a long way, but I must warn you - IT'S SO DELIGHTFUL, many have been known to become Addicted!  Just Sayin'  LOL

These Handmade Elegant Florals, and MANY MORE embellishments for crafting, are available for purchase in the Pinque Peacock Shop - HERE!

I also added a little extra flair for her Already Dazzling Hairstyle.  I added a 3/4" flat back Peacock Silk (how could I not?) Fabric Covered Button which can also be purchased at the Pinque Peacock Shop.


I hope you feel inspired by my card today!

Keep Crafting
