Brads and ribbon

I can't believe it is time for Chicka Challenge #3 already! We had 4 people take part in our distressing challenge, Armie, Glenda, Victoria and Jennie. Everyone did a great job so now we are on to challenge #3. This week's challenge is to make a card with ribbon and brads. You see, Jane and I bought a little package of ribbon brads made by Karen Foster. It is the cutest set of ribbon loops and matching brads. Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to make a card using BOTH ribbon and brads. I picked orange, green and purple to go with my vampire card. Also used another product I have never used before, Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. I sprayed pink taffy and golden terra cotta on some white cardstock to get the shimmery orange paper behind my vampire. The shimmer is a little hard to see in my photo but just the name, Glimmer Mist, conjures up the way it looks IRL. Can't believe I am using so many new products these days. Usually I have to "save" new stuff to use later. Anyone else have that same affliction? Wanted the vampires coat to be super sparkly so I used plenty of black glitter and a Quickie glue pen for the perfect effect. Now, go ahead and give our latest challenge a try and post here or on Jane's blog and let the creativity flow!!!

Hi Dawn!

Fun challenge. I realized after I'd made my card that I was supposed to include more than one brad, so hopefully it's okay I bent the rules this time!
