Eyelet, Ribbon, & Paper Challenge #2


This is my submission for the second challenge for our blog group. The challenge was to be inspired by ribbon and use it to create somethng wonderful. I tried my hardest to find a unique or fairly decorated ribbon to use, however, my stash is getting very low (thank you children). I did however, buy this pretty ruffled green ribbon last week to use with another project (Basic Grey mini book). The ribbon actually feels like suede in the middle and then the delicate ruffle on the edge (its really nice to touch and very soft). The color of the ribbon inspired me more than anything else...I found a rather large stack of patterned paper in a cabinet that I was pretty sure I got rid of...now I am glad I didn't. I used my Nesties to cut out the shape and used pop dots to raise the lighter colored paper. The sentiment was something I created in Word and used a darker olive color. I used Colorbox Moss Green & Colorbox Fluid Chalk Creamy Brown together to distress the edges. The finished card size is 6x6.

Hi Debbie,
Glad you had fun with your friends, can't wait to see the cards you made. Your challenge card is very pretty. I am still working on mine. I usually scrap alone, but occasionally go to an SU party.

hi there! I stumbled across your site while browsing on the web for Memory Works Consultants. I am looking to become one and have been wanting to get advice or tips from someone already consulting. So...do you love it and was it worth it? I won't be signing up for probably another couple of weeks (I'm going to Utah to visit family), but I would love to hear what you have to say! Thanks!
