For You! A JustRite Friday Challenge!

Did you know? Every Friday JustRite Stampers issues a challenge, JustRite for YOU! Before we get to my creation for today's challenge, please note the following important challenge details:
  • JustRite will pre-announce the theme or topic of each weekly challenge at the beginning of each month (by the first Friday), giving you time to gather any necessary supplies to participate.
  • Check out this page, called Challenges, by clicking on THIS TAB.
  • JustRite also offers a prize each week for the winning project! Challenge participants have until the following Thursday, 9am CST of each issued challenge to enter a creation. The winner will be chosen and announced on the JustRite's blog later on that Thursday.
  • When you upload your project to an online gallery, please use the weekly challenge code in the keyword section of the Splitcoaststampers project upload page or the Tag section of Flickr.

For this weeks challenge, (code is: JRC_030) use this photo as your creation inspiration. I utilized the colors from our inspiration photo to create my card shown below.

After stamping my sentiment and borders, I trimmed the borders around the design. I used my craft knife to slit along the top and bottom of largest frame's inside edge. This allows the ribbon to thread through and around card front.

The Victorian Nested Frames and Sentiment Set in its entirety. Such a great set for card inside sentiments too.

Here are the clear blocks now available in two horizontal sizes. This makes for much easier placement when matching up the frames and sentiments. I hope this inspires you to play along this week! TAKE GOOD CARE! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi Barb, your card is so pretty, I really love what you did with the ribbon (I'll have to remember to use that one) and I really love how you used those gorgeous stamps like that (another idea I will need to remember), thanks for the inspiration!
