LL Sketch & Product Challenge......Ric Rac Rockin' in Texas!!!!

As a trim or to complete a scene,
Ric rac can be used on anything!
Used on a card or used on a layout,
Ric rac will make your creation stand out!
Time for the Limelight Papercrafts Sketch and Product Challenge! The theme for this challenge is RIC RAC ROCKS! Your challenge is to use ric rac on your card or layout!
Mandy has some 1.5" Ric Rac from May Arts at Limelight Papercrafts. It is so fun to work with, so be sure to pick some up if you don't already have some! If you do not have the large ric rac, incorporate some of the skinny ric rac into your design. So you don't have ANY ric rac? Just create a fun ric rac pattern with some wavy-cut paper!

Here is my take.......using a bit skinnier Ric Rac because UH OH!!!!!! It didn't get packed into my stampin' stuff for the trip!!!!! I seriously was panicked and felt soooooo awful........but I found some ric rac that I could make work okay.......but I reallllllllly think this card would be so much "cooler" with the WIDE Ric Rac!!!! LOL I used some wonderful Stickles to dazzle up the flowers a bit, otherwise I let the Ric Rac be the star of the card!!!! :)
