H2H Challenge: Ribbon, Ribbon Everywhere
Did that wake you up? Good!
Another Monday means another challenge from the Heart 2 Heart blog and this week you'll need to get out your stash of ribbons. Come on now, I know you all have them. Long strands of ribbon still on the spool, short pieces of your favorite ribbon you just can't make yourself get rid of, ribbon you have no idea where you got it from, ribbon that is so ugly you don't know why you keep it but you do because the second you toss it in the trash you find the perfect project to use it on.
What do you mean I'm the only one like that. Really?
Okay, well let me just show you what I did for this week's challenge and then I'll get started on clearing out my ribbon supply. The challenge for this week is to use 2 different kinds of ribbon...easy, right? Especially if you have a hoard of ribbon to choose from.
Stamps: CTMH Bowl of Cherries
Inks: CTMH Tulip, Chocolate, Sweet Leaf, Parchment
Papers: CTMH Cherry-O Reflections Kit (coming May 1st to a consultant near you...ME!)
I just really, really love this new paper! That's a warning...you're likely to find lots of pieces made with it in the future.
Here's a close up of the bowl and cherries:
And one of the ribbon treatment. I felt so lucky with the last bow I made, I thought I'd step it up a bit and add a double bow to this card:
The ribbon is once again from the Colonial White collection. I added the thin ribbon from the Chocolate collection to adhere to the challenge requirements. The Tulip button is from the new Tulip Mini-Medley collection (once again, coming May 1st).
Hope you all can join in the challenge fun this week. Go get crafty now...I have some purging to do!
