WOW!! Look at this AMAZING card that was our CHALLENGE INSPIRATION for this week!! =)
I LOVE the MME Papers and the Vintage/Shabby feel of the card!!

So I too had some of the beautiful MME papers and I decided to use them as my starting point!!
I wanted to give it the same Vintage/Shabby look so I added several layers and distressed everything!!
I started by cutting a strip of glitter dot paper and then added it to a lined paper. I cut out a journal shape from one of the other MME papers and decided to use some stamps from one of my Glitz Designs stamp sets!! I used a silhouette shape and a title block!! I then added them with dimensional adhesive to the journal shape and after I added some Prima lace and some ribbon to the edge of the dot paper strip I added the journal shape on top and lined it up with the edge of my card!!
I then added some buttons to the bottom left hand side of the card and used black twine to stitch them!! I also added a black rose to the center of the bow!!
I placed that piece on a black dotted MME paper and distressed the edges!! I attached it all to a kraft cardbase and inked the edges using black ink to ground the whole card!! I LOVE the way it turned out and I can't wait to give it away!! =)
Here are some photos of my card!!
