Cas-ual Fridays 12 Challenge

The challenge this week was to include stickers or rub ons on the card.  I used to use sentiment rub ons quite a bit before I switched to computer generated text.  I love the process of transferring them - it's a little magical.

I did wonder if peel offs could be classed as stickers. I am embarassed by the number of these that I have.  I have thought recently that I should either put them in the bin, or find inventive ways of using them up.
I included a sticker on my submission.
This came as leftovers from a card kit that I purchased some years ago and I'm so glad that I've found a reason to use it. The ribbon came from the same kit and was part of a similar card to this if I remember correctly. So I should probably say that this is a CASE of that original even if it is stored in my convoluted brain.  The colours of the ribbon dictated the colours of card that I chose.

 I cut a rectangle to house the sticker, rounded the corners and cut a slit for the ribbon to go through.  I sacrificed one of my button brads.......I hate parting with them..... to secure the ribbon. 3D foam pads were my method of fixing the tag to the card base.

Love the colours on this card, and that button brad is something I haven't seen before, no wonder you could hardly part with it, aren't we a messed up lot, us crafters, we buy to put on cards or something else and then can't bare to part with them LOL
