A Charming Challenge - ODBDSLC23

The current ODBD Shining the Light challenge is to use ribbon, a charm and one other embellishment on your card, but that embellishment cannot be a flower.  Easy enough since I don't often use flowers on my card, but the charm part was going to be hard since I don't have a lot of charms.   In fact, I had exactly two charms both purses, that I got with a scrapbook kit I bought several years ago.  Because the charms were purses, I made my card a girlfriend/friendship card using ODBD's set "Friendship".  I love the swirly dragonfly image, as well as all the sentiments/verses in the set.   In an effort to use up some of my older supplies I pulled out PTI's 6x6 pad of Everyday Blessings pp and used the coordinating PTI cardstock of Aqua Mist and PTI ribbon of Spring Moss for the card.  Added a bit of distressing using CTMH's Parchment ink to tone things down a bit.

Thanks for taking a peek... have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Stamps:  ODBD Friendship; Cardstock:  PTI Aqua Mist & white; PP:  Everyday Blessings; Ribbon:  PTI Spring Moss; Ink:  Spring Moss & Memento Rich Cocoa; charm - unknown; Cuttlebug; Spellbinders Labels #9; Kaiser light blue rhinestones
