Hi everyone and happy Sunday to you all! We have a new challenge for you at Dream Valley Challenges today, and you'll love the theme cos it involves a crafter's staple item.....USE RIBBONS! Who doesn't like to use a bit of ribbon on their projects, it's simply an essential! lol. Our sponsor is Crafty Ribbons, so a lucky randomly-picked winner will receive a prize from them.
My card this week is a very simple one and fairly quick to make because I didn't colour this fabulous image, but I am really pleased with the result. I used a Crafty Purple Frog download that I won last week - it's actually a decoupage sheet but I just used the base image. I cut a circle from the image, stuck that onto a scalloped circle Nestie, fixed another Nestie to it for the back of the card, and wound ribbon through all the holes round the edge. I tied the ends in a bow, added some flowers and glitter and voila! a very simple idea but I hope you will like it.

I'm entering this in these challenges:
C.E.S. Challenges - Anything but square
Spoonful of Sugar - Ribbons & Bows
Whoopsie Daisy - pile on the flowers
That's me for today, enjoy your weekend and I'll see you when I pop into your blogs during the week. Bye for now!
This is brilliant! I love how you threaded the ribbon through the holes in the nestie (is it the Lacey Circles one - hope so, I've got that) and I am SO going to lift this idea - if that's okay of course?! TFS, Dee
I love this idea of the frame but that colouring is truly amazing!! So talented you are!

Hi "ME", HER" here, this is beautiful, lovely ribbon work and very unusual, love it, Carole xxxxxxx
the card is so delightful.
Love the purple ribbon.
What an awesome idea Carole! You are so very clever! That looks absolutely stunning and very intricate!!! xx
FANTASTIC! Love the way you have threaded the ribbons and made the front of the card look completely different than it would have done with just semi circular holes around the edge.
If you hadn't fessed up to not colouring the image I would have assumed it was your own work because despite what you seem to think of yourself, you ARE that good!
It may be a simple card but it certainly has that WOW factor! It's just gorgeous. xx
