Paper Temptress Extra #1 ...

Remember I mentioned on Sunday that our awesome sponsor at the Pile It On! Challenge Blog this week is The Paper Temptress and Patricia was kind enough to supply all the PIO! DT girles with a generous package of assorted cardstock, patterned papers and scrumptious ribbons.  All she asked in return was for the DT gals to create 3 additional cards besides our regular weekly challenge card to showcase her yummy products.  What ... ask me to make more cards ... check, check!!!  I love to paper craft and especially to make cards!

The cardstock I used from PT on this design is LASER SILVER LUSTRE and CRANBERRY ICE.  Additional patterend papers from K & Co and Making Memories.

Isn't this card so sweet?!  Such a precious vintage image of a beautiful little girl.  I framed her sweet image with some Pink Paislee alterable frames -- they are new and so cool ... you can alter them as you wish and I spritzed mine with Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.  The pearls and swirls are from Prima, butterfly with rhinestones is from Jenni Bowlin and that sweet little crocheted flower with the pearl center is actually lavendar.  This sweet image and frame cried out to be glittered ... so I indulged and dunked it in my treasured bucket that sits atop my craft desk!!

Isn't that organza ribbon to die for?  The stripes match the stripes in the PT patterned paper - so shimmery, soft and pretty!  It's really neat ribbon ... comes on a spool, flat with strings that you just pull and it creates the most beautiful 3-D flowers and fleurettes - yum!
