TWO ribbon challenges

At the Ribbon Girl Blog, there is a scrumptious selection of ribbons and lace up for grabs for the winner of their current color challenge:


Pink, brown and cream makes a beautiful combination!  And amazingly, pink and brown are the required colors for the challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge, too!


I used papers from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found's Madison Avenue paper pad - this was the perfect place to use this lovely pink bird on a chocolate brown background:

Ribbon Girl #16

supplies: cream card base, MME Lost & Found Madison Avenue dps, , Die-Namics large scallop die, ivory lace, pale pink ribbon, hemp twine, pink heart buttons

It's very strange to make a card and not do any stamping, but these papers didn't need anything else; even the sentiment was already there!  I cut the card narrower to accomodate the scalloped edge and balanced it with the beautiful ivory lace.

  2. Just love those pink and brown papers, Lin, and those buttons add the perfect touch! I know what you mean about doing a card without stamping - seems unnatural - LOL!
