Tammy's Scrapin' Corner Challenge # 59 - Anything Goes - BLING IT UP!

Happy Monday Morning, y'all!

April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. 
 The ASPCA had adopted the
 orange ribbon with a paw print as their symbol
 to bring awareness to this horrific cause 
and I've used it on this card to show my support.

Using the QKR Stampede Concertina Tutorial; thank you Paper Crazy Lady for the "know how" - (it is so appreciated when artist's trade ideas, instructions and inspiration - I'm so blessed to be involved with such a generous group of humans) - cut your purple base as shown in the instructions.  

I'm not going to go into detail on this card, as it was VERY time consuming
(decorating 6 pages with layers and bling and sentiments and all the angles). 
 So rather than bore you,
 I can send you a recipe card, if you wish.
 Just email me and it will be on it's way.

I am showing you some of my PRC (Photo Recipe Card) with some of the steps I used

 Using your punch, cut the border out of light purple card stock

 Determine the size you need your digi to be

 Stamping the clouds - but later decided that they needed to be embossed to show better

 All layers (except the front top layer) will be dry embossed with the Polka Dots folder

Attach rat tail ribbon with 1/8" scor tape

 My very first time using a heat gun (I have been using my stove) OOPS!!!

 Die cutting the sayings I found on the net
