Let's Celebrate: My First Card!

I did it, finally! Yay, my first card... Joy, happiness and celebration!

I haven't really kicked off with the whole card making thing because of a number of reasons so I only have very limited supplies in my stash. My friend Renata was the one who really inspired me, but unlike in her country, we have very limited craft stores here in the Philippines.  So I have to be resourceful, right? And the only work around I thought of is to start with digital stamps. See, Resourcefulness is now my new last name! Haha.

I've been a member of Paper Craft Planet since 2009, but not really doing anything to contribute to the community. I was browsing through my favorite blogs last night, I ended up reading a post from Charmed Stamping about a free digital image from Sassy Studio Designs. And then I got all excited! I checked the group out and there it was, waiting for me and my love!

They call it Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday. And this week's free digital image is called "Cosmopolitan". The challenge is called "Tie One On" which means that you have to incorporate something you "tie" in your card, like ribbons, twines, threads, etc.

And here my friends is my finished card. Comments, wild reactions, encouragements are most welcome. Please don't be too hard on me, it's really my first time. Hahaha.

I know, that brown and gold paper flower looks familiar. It's from the Ferrero Rocher I was munching on last night. Hehehe. Told you, I'm resourceful.

I'd also like to enter this card to the following challenges:
