Lucky Chandelier

I had such a fun filled weekend...I'll give the deets on my card first. I made this for a gal that recently opened her own business...following her dreams. I haven't used my trusty Impress Chandelier in a bit so I decided to use that along with a River Rock/Black paper combo. I was going to use a wide black velvet ribbon but thought I'd add a little pattern by using the satin gingham ribbon....I wanted to add a "bit more" since there isn't any stitching so I added a scalloped band under the ribbon...what do you think of the scallops? I used my fiskars "cloud" scissors...of course the chandelier needed the bling. I need to use River Rock more...I really like the color....especially teamed up with black.
stamps: impress chandelier & amuse text paper: stampin' up river rock and misc black ink: versafine onyx black accessories: heidi swapp distresser, bling, fiskars cloud scissors, misc satin gingham and bling!
Did you notice my new pictures on the sidebar? My profile picture was taken on friday night when we tried out Boom Noodle. Great place...I love their name:

In Japan today there is a popular term, “my boom” that means, “The thing I am currently obsessed with.” Our “my boom” is Japanese cuisine, and we are grateful to you for letting us create our food for you.

My new latte art is compliments of the Essential Baking Cafe..

Have a super week!
