If you weren't able to join us, I've posted the supplies and steps for making the card below.
Supplies (all are available from the fine folks at Marco's Paper)
o “Little More” rubber stamp by Rubber Cottage (RC-436D)
o Spellbinders Nestabilities – Long classic scallop rectangles (S4-145)
o Spellbinders Impressabilities – Pebbles (I2-1010)
o 10” of sheer pink ribbon
o Distress dye ink pads – Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick, Scattered Straw
o Flower Soft – Sweet Pea or Spring
o Foam tape or pop dots
o Swirl punch from EK Success (PSM87C)
Wrap ribbon around front of embossed panel and secure on back side with tape, trim off excess ribbon (save for later use on card front). Adhere embossed panel to front of card.
We used the Wizard machine but the Impressabilities and Nestabilities will work with other die cut/embossing machines. If you're having trouble getting a good impression, try spritzing your cardstock with Paper Glide first.
Check your calendar for Saturday, March 6th - I'll be hosting another Make-it / Take-it at Marco's. Check back later in the week for a sneak peek . . .

So, now I have to ask the question that has been lingering on my mind since I started this series - have you finished all of your cards from the class? If so, send some to me so I can share with others.
I did some purging in one of my closets over the weekend and found several unfinished knitting, crocheting and sewing projects. I was reminded of a comment I overheard at my favorite yarn shop - KnitWits - the other day. The gist of it was a challenge to finish at least one open project before starting any more new ones or to pick a day of the week and dedicate it to working on unfinished projects. So, tonight I'm headed to the nest to finish up an afghan that only needs about 2 more rows. The intended recipient has long since outgrown it (it was originally intended to be a baby afghan) and so it will be donated to a worthy cause. Another completed project, the wonderful feeling of accomplishment and the happiness in the eyes of the recipient - its all good. I hope your day is too.

This card uses a fun musical note punch from Punch Bunch, a few more notes stamped on the card front and a couple of strips of printed paper that has a musical score on it with pretty colors sponged all over. I can't remember which company made the note and the verse, but I'll edit the post if I find them.
