Dotty ribbons .....

... A quick post this morning to share a card that I've made for two challenges:

  • Do you stack up? - DYSU#56  where the design team would like us to use ribbons on our card
  • CASE study - CSC#75 inspiration card


It's the last challenge from the current muse over at CASE Study - Jen Rzasa has provided some fabulous inspiration cards and this week's is just lovely - I adore the tied threads!  For my card I've used a large sentiment - to echo the sentiment on Jen's card, and dotty rainbow ribbons.  I decided to run my ribbons on a diagonal.  It was really easy to attach the ribbons evenly, I simply attached my card to my glass cutting mat and used the guide lines to line up the ribbons.


Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Join Us
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Ribbons by Avec in various colours, Card from stash

I've been busy in my craft room this weekend trying to get as far ahead with my Design Team cards as I can, and I'm making quite good progress.  As you know, Jonathan came back from the States last week and things are now beginning to happen with regards to our move to the States.  That means I've got quite a few bits and pieces to get done on the house - odd little bits that I'm happy to live with, but that need to be sorted before we can let the house to tenants.  So I'm going to be quite busy in the next few weeks - the down side to all this is that I don't think I'm going to be able to take part in quite as many challenges as I've been doing.  Sob!!!  But it is so exciting!  Just wish I had an actual date!!!

That's all for now - I'm off to craft class this morning and then this afternoon I'm going to be organising jobs on the house!!  See you soon!

Love it! Great tip for lining up the ribbons too - I usually make a mess of cutting my ribbon on things like this and get freyed edges. Yours are perfect!

It does help that the ribbons came with the sticky on already!

Nice take on the challenge - I like the pretty ribbons - makes it fancy yet still achieved the CAS look.

Love those colourful ribbons Deborah and the diagnal slant is a great design, shame about lack of crafting time but at least you've got a bigger goal to work too :0)

Lovely take on the challenge, Deborah! Love your choice to do it on the diagonal.

Hope all goes well with what you need to get done. I like your interpretation of the inspirational card - particularly the way you slanted those ribbons & used polka dots, the colours are a lovely mixture & I like how you have arranged them in graduated shades.
