365 Cards - #84

The challenge today over at 365 Cards was to follow a recipe which was set down by Pam and that was to have a 3 x 3 card base, 1 x flower, 1 x brad, 1 x piece of ribbon, 1 x stamped sentiment and NO PATTERNED PAPER!
Now I gotta say that this is the single most boring card I think I have ever made.  I was almost to ashamed to put it up here, but rules is rules and I had to follow the recipe.  So here it is.  

I am off to watch a movie with my husband now.  I hope everyone had fun making this one, she's a beauty lol.  
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Supplies: Not Quite Navy and Barely Banana cardstock.  Barely Banana grosgrain ribbon. Earth Elements brad.  One Of A Kind stamp set. Versa Magic white cloud stamp pad.  Not Quite Navy stamp pad. Eyelet Border punch.  Sponge Dauber.  All those supplies were SU.  Flower is a Bella flower.

Oooh...Michelle, this is so pretty! I really do love how you layer your punched edges. It's such a great look and so uniquely "you" :). This is definitely NOT boring, but I know what you mean. After I sent mine to Pam, I kept thinking "oh, i don't want that one posted on the blog!!". oh well, you can't win them all and you guys are inspiring with so many ideas on how to really take this challenge to the next step!! Have a lovely weekend!

I am wondering how mine is going to turn out, I am a bit fearful of this one. At least we are all have to make the same thing!?! It is a true challenge I admit. I will have something later. Enjoy your movie!

We can be our own worst critics! Take it from all of us-it is a great card-elegant and the blue(my fav colour) is great.
