I Was "Most Wanted"

About a month ago, my card won "Most Wanted" (first place) at Our Partner in Crafting Crime.  Because of that, I was invited to be a guest designer this week.  This week's theme is "Shine On You Dazzling Diamond" so basically all sparkle and shine is good to go for this challenge.  Here is the card that I made for this guest DT opportunity. 

I didn't set out to make a monochromatic card, but it just worked out that way with the More Mustard CS and the K& Co. DP.  Everything I picked up to go on the card just blended so nicely and supported the monochromatic style of this card.  This is a super simple card.  The die cuts are Spellbinders Labels Five and a Waltzing Mouse label stamp makes up the main image, while diamond embossed chipboard provides a medallion to hold the ribbon and flower element.  A bit of ribbon, a tiny handmade canvas flower and few sweet buttons finish off the card. 

A hugh thank you to all the ladies over at My Partner in Crafting Crime for picking my card as "Most Wanted".  So happy to be able to play along with your challenge this fortnight! 

Blessings & hugs,
