FOSTV 69 - Its a 1,2,3

Hello, hope your week has started well.  I am rather late doing this post so apologies if you came looking earlier.

My card today is for Friends of Speedy TV challenge number 69 and the challenge this week is to use
  • 1 ribbon
  • 2 buttons
  • 3 designer papers and if you have them some lovely MFP stamps - you can still enter without them and stand the chance of winning this set

You can find the challenge at Speedy TV which has been slimmed down recently so looks neater.  All the FOSTV challenges are here 

If you read yesterday's post you will know I have done a quick course at MCC using the mix and match edgeabilities from Spellbinders.  As you can see I used some on these card to add some pretty borders behind these oriental ladies from the MFP set called Asian Delights. To get to my count of 3 papers I actually stamped on DP which is not something I do often.  I coloured a little on the DP with some markers but didn't choose the right ink for Copics.  I think now I should have taken some pencils and coloured their faces.

The buttons and ribbon were from my stash (the ribbon might be from MFP but I am unsure). 

As well as doing the front of the card I did an "Angie"
and did some decoration inside

I also popped something onto the envelope
 so it would brighten the postman's day!

Please don't forget to check out the Speedy TV page and join in with this week's challenge.
