Challenges, challengers

I just cannot help myself.  I had to go into the challenge at Little Paper Shop.  It is a sketch Challenge Sketch Challenge LPSC60

I am still stuck on embossed eggs so I had two goes at this sketch this afternoon.  The first one evolved because I had trouble with the second one - you know how it is.  So, I ended  up searching through my stash to locate something different, and as I was fixated on brown by then,  it had to have a metalic feel.  I had aquired some lovely tapestry ribbon as some stage and always put it back into the stash because it was 'too good to use' but bit the bullet today and cut into it - once started I couldn't stop! A metalic strip and a Confusion saying inside, and a picture from ARTchix Studio's Party Cards set, a commercial tag, some bling and some SU Designer Paper made the rest. It is all on a craft card base.  (Noticed after I had put this up that the picture card was crooked and discovered I had not attached it - just tucked it behind the ribbon!  I can assure you it is now quite firmly attached and straight!)

The second card is embossed in white, inked with three SU coloured inks, and some bling added.  The frame is from a Fern Gull stamp, stamped with SU Close to Cocoa ink and clear embossed, and the sentiment is one of WMS's. Ribbon, extra bling and the backing sheet is just a scrap in the stash from Basic Grey.
