I finally got my energy back and made some cards yesterday. Here's the third card I made, which I'm publishing first as I'm submitting it to the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge and the Moxie Fab's Creative Card Challenge: Make Your Own Background Paper. I even used Penny Black stamps for the card (which SSS requested but isn't a requirement).
I took some ribbon I got a Fabricland and did a bow using this fantastic technique, added the backing ribbon before tying the center and then glued the whole thing on the page (one dot of hot glue gun glue at the edges on the back of the card and one under the ribbon to keep it in place). To finish it off, I finally used a pin! I took a sewing pin I got in a package at the dollar store that has pearled balls on the ends in different colours and so chose the purple. I then added a metal bead and a pearlescent glass bead before pinning it through the bow. As the card's planned for an adult who has no kids I'm assuming the pin end sticking out won't be a problem.
The final touch was adding a bit of glitter pen to the necklace, bracelet and purse chain.
