February Stamp Camp Card #3

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
It's card number three of my February Stamp Camp cards to share with you.....Let's Jump Right In.....
This card was INSPIRED and CASE'd from Nanci Siegrist at our Stampin' Connection demonstrators site.  When I saw this card....I was IMMEDIATELY DRAWN to the fabulous little embellishment that Nanci had created in the upper left hand corner of her card.  Let me walk you through the steps of putting this card together....... 
I started with a base card of Early Espresso cardstock and added a Crumb Cake cardstock mat over my base card.   
 Grabbing my First Edition DSP I created a banner to run directly through the center of my card and then stamped the Bicycle from the Feeling Sentimental SAB set onto a Crumb Cake square.
Here's a close-up of the FABULOUS embellishment that Nanci created and she did this  using the new 7/16" Natural Ribbon trim and securing two Jewelry Punched tags from the 1st Edition DSP and adding a Linen Thread bow to the top of this with a Vintage Trinket safety pin. 
The real magic comes together for this entire card when you use a Stampin' Sponge and some Early Espresso ink and distress up all the edges of your cardstock and 1st Edition DSP. 
Simply find this card one of those AMAZING CREATIONS that could be used for any occasion or any event and would look fabulous in all sorts of earth-tone colors. Many THANKS to Nanci for her creative eye and brilliant work.
 
So I have one final day left for my February Stamp camp share.......I'll be back tomorrow to share that last card with you.  I'm hoping you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
