Getting Cricky Promotional Week - Day 4!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great day!! Thanks for stopping by for Day 4 of Getting Cricky Promotional Week!! We have one more day of projects to share tomorrow before the U R So Sweet Blog Hop on Friday :)
For my card today, I used gorgeous paper from the My Mind's Eye Meadow Lark stack that I won from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces! I absolutely LOVE this paper...actually, I haven' seen any My Mind's Eye that I don't love!! The scallops are three sizes of Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 and I attached them together with foam tape. I inked all of the edges with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink
I used a Spellbinders Borderabilities to cut the edge of the paper. In the holes that it created, I added crystal gems. I had some beautiful lace ribbon with the same curves, so I added that below. I used white organza and tied the center with a piece of black ribbon.

"I'll be there for you" is of course a mix and match sentiment from Owly Hoo, my featured stamp set for the week!! There are so many mix and match sentiments...perfect for any card, owly or not :)
