For my card and the Add Material challenge - I have used a red velvet ribbon, gathered and sewn together. In the middle I have used a Very Vanilla Jumbo brad, stamped the image from Artistic Etchings, punched out with the 1/2" circle punch and applied with crystal effects. I did contemplate stamping straight onto the brad ... but uh uh .... chances are it would've been WAY out of line.
Oh, and as for the stripes, yes ... I cut and glued each stripe individually ... wanted to see if I really do need that new Stripey Background stamp in the new Catalogue .,.... I think I do!!!
And this is the sketch for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge.
Now, head on over to these challenge sites for some brilliant inspiration from some fantastic and talented designers.

I have used Night of Navy, Bashful Blue and Whisper White as my neutral.
So in the meantime, I had been watching the Helping Hudson fundraiser from afar, I did manage to complete the first sketch challenge before I left, took the pics, but didn't get time to upload anyway, I'll add the pic down below for your viewing pleasure ... and my ego!!!! .... lol ...
I have turned the sketch sideways and have used some new stamp sets to create a really simple card.
Stamps: Artistic Etchings, Cute by the Inch, For the Bride (sentiment)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black
Ink: Real Red, Basic Black
Other: Black/White Gingham Ribbon, Red Ribbon (generic), Red rhinestones (generic)
Please feel free to stop and help out this very worthy cause Helping Hudson
Edited to add: Oops, I forgot to add my other card
This was a fun card to make .... I made the baubles using the snowflake stamp from Season of Joy, punched it out with the 1" punch, punched a 1.25" circle in Real Red, used the word window punch as the hanger bit and added small rhinestones to complete the effect.
