Pals Paper Arts Featured Artist
I'm thrilled to be able to share a card today that I made as Feature Artist for this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge... Ribbon... I'm sure you all know how much I LOVE ribbon, so I'm so excited to share my ribbon inspired card. Can you count how many different types I used?
Here are the DEEtails:
The colors in this inspiration photo really popped out to me as a fun and unexpected color combination. I interpreted it as Rich Razzleberry, Concord Crush, Lucky Limeade and a touch of Soft Suede. I started with a piece of Rich Razzleberry DSP and added an edge of Concord Crush punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border (technically not ribbon, but I think it should still count!) and tucked some Lucky Limeade underneath. I love this contrast. Then I cut a strip of Naturals White card stock and rounded the corners on one side. I wrapped some Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Rich Razzleberry around it and trimmed it with pinking shears. Pinked ribbon is such a fun effect. I tucked in some more Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border so it peeks up a tiny bit at the top of my wide ribbon. Then I tied on some Linen Thread (also not really a ribbon, but let's count it anyway). I die cut a couple of butterflies, using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. I love the way the wings pop up on the card. I tied on some Rich Razzleberry Taffeta Ribbon for antennae. Then I tucked in some Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon with some leaves punched from the Bird Punch to add a fresh pop of color. For my final touch, I added the sentiment, from SU!'s Thank You Kindly to the bottom of my card.
Thanks for stopping by today!
