Birthday card with ribbon
I am entering the card in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday - sketch 217
Obviously I chose to use the square sketch - I just flipped it so the image was on the left and the ribbon was on the right. I loved this sketch and I debated for ages about whether to use the round option or the square option.
The Ribbon Reel Challenge #16 - 'ANYTHING GOES' and use RIBBON on your card / project.
Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #37 - This week's challenge is to simply create a BIRTHDAY CARD and to remember to include some birthday wording/sentiment on your card front.
This card had a couple of 'firsts' for me - I had a go at making a paper flower - I think it turned out OK! I inked the edges of it with pink ink once I was finished just to make it stand out a bit more. I made the dragonfly ages ago using beads and wire - I wish I could remember how to make them! I think the instructions were in an old edition of Scrapbooking Memories or maybe Stamping and Papercraft magazine - but I am talking well over five years ago! I guess if I was to google it someone out there would have instructions for me!
Both sentiments were Kaisercraft stamps - I've never stamped straight onto ribbon before but it actually worked quite well..
The bird is from Create a critter cartridge.
The flowers and yellow ribbon are Kaisercraft.
Other ribbons, lace and button are from my stash.
Thanks for looking!
