With Faith All Things Are Possible

My card is  for today's Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge, the challenge is to use embossing, heat or dry and use a die cut and a ribbon, kind of a recipe of sorts for your card.
 
I used Maya by La La Land Crafts, she's a rubber stamp and is available at the LLLC store here and there's a sale going on!  25% off!!  I added one little detail to her that she didn't come with, googlie eyes.  She's colored with mostly cool gray Copic markers and cut out with a Spellbinders die.  I embossed the card body with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and cut the scalloped border with a new MFT Stamps die.  The ribbon is a dotted organdy.  My sentiment stamp is by Papertrey Ink.  I tried to go pretty clean and simple for my card, I really enjoyed doing the last couple of white on white challenges I kind of had that on my mind while I was making this card.  Maybe it's more black and white with a pop of color?

Don't forget to go check out the Midweek Throwdown challenge over at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps, I hope you'll play along!

Also there's a new challenge over at the Michelle Perkett Studio blog, it's Back To School and there's more stuff going on so you'll have to go check it out so you can read all about it!  Have you seen Michelle's  new Willow digital image yet?  She's gorgeous!
