Midnight Madness and Normal Madness ;)

Midnight is Challenging Time
Actually I'm not too sure what to say but assumably I should say something about this project. Err... The card is cream 220gms A6. Insert is creamy (although you can't see it, of course, from here). I started mess about with things, I just knew what I wanted and of course this wasn't it. ;)

How can you squeeze satin AND organza ribbons through the tiny hole? As you can see, I can't, but ohdearme, I tried :D . Pic proves it all ;) Tried to get it nicely and equally both sides but naaaah... Colours were good, thou.

This detail is the decoupage. Black oval is 220 black matt card stock (cutted by myself with my lovely, brilliant, amazing Fiskars template and whatwasit... Shape Cutter Plus. "Shiny" jewels are some self adhesive thingies from one of boxes full of this and that. Backing paper is created by me with permission of decoupage die cut company. :) (Good customer or exellent Craft UK PR department?)

More black was needed and then I took this leftover black piece of card stock and rolled it through this funny machine I have noooo idea what it is. It makes the card wavy. :D Cream oval edges are coloured using just Stabilo colour pen.

Ok, I would like to enter to challenge: 

Thank you for reading :)
