For today I am playing along with Friday MashUp! I usually have all the best intentions of linking up with them but somehow it never seems to work out; until tonight!! Here is my card.. Enjoy!

Friday MashUp!: Challenge FM231
I don't think I made a card this cute in awhile. So, when I saw this challenge I knew right away what I was going to do and it came together like a dream!! This was a great way to use up ribbon that was quite literally collecting dust.. I really don't use ribbon enough. Seriously, check out my board TheGrandStampede on Pinterest. Maybe I over did the ribbon theme on the card but I really don't mind because I just love it.
I had to use hot glue to adhere all the ribbon together because remarkably glue don't really work. I was remembering my architectural days of building models and how painful but helpful this crafting material can be. It is also where I learned to really swear!!
I think my little creature reminds of Cousin It from the Addams Family. Cute in his own way and so funny but strange and a little bit freaky!!
|Remember Cousin It!|
I watched this show everyday after school.
This is when televisions were pieces of furniture and not picture frames.
|As you can probably guess this card is not exactly light. I didn't want a floppy affect when you opened it up. So I reinforced the back with heavy weight CS that compensated for the weight of the 'embellishment' monster on the front.|
|This little guy is so cute with all its color and googly eyes.|
Tons of dimension just like the inspiration photo.
All the best,
