I love ribbons, do you?

Hello blogworld

Can you believe it's Saturday again, hasn't the last week gone quick (well I think anyway), and you know what it being Saturday means - a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin.

So do you love ribbons?  Would you be able to use more than one ribbon on your card?  Then the challenge is right up your street as this week, along with the stamping, we'd like you to use more than one ribbon on your creation.  Doesn't matter how you use the ribbon - and some of my Teamies have been very inventive (much more than me!) - there just has to be more than one.

We've our regular monthly sponsor with a £10 voucher on offer:

The sponsor for this week is

and the prize is little bundle of gorgeousness!

Now my attempt at using more than one ribbon.  I've been very boring and done what I very often do when I use ribbon - layer one over the other.

Front shot:

Arty, farty side image:
I used:

Sugar Nellie - Gorgeous Girl; Guardian Angel, coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. Glamour dust on their wings.
Nestie circles.
Corner flourish (made with two): Memory Box - Elegant Scrollwork
Flourish circle: 
Lea'bilities Cutting/Embossing Die - Swirl Circle and Flowers


Spotty is from a free pad that came with a mag.
Flower from Papermania - Blueberry Hill
The rest:
Ribbons and flowers from my stuff
Pin made by me
My card blank

So why not pop over to the challenge blog and see how clever my Teamies have been with their ribbons and looking forward to seeing what you make with yours.



A challenge, or two:

The Sugar Bowl: Challenge 82 - Maria Theresa's Sketch - which I rotated, hope that's OK

Totally Gorjuss: Challenge 127 - Bling (I'm not sure that the glitter on their wings can be classed as 'bling' hope so!  But if not feel free to delete)

Stampin' for the Weekend: Challenge 8 - Sparkle and shine (again the sparkle on their wings)

Crafty Ribbons Challenge: Things with wings

and just for fun:

Lisa's Waste not Wednesdays - Lisa I've forgotten how old this stamp is and how long I've had it!!  I've not used it before as, tho I love the image, it always strikes me as being a little sad, beautiful but sad.

Very elegant and classy. I regularly layer ribbon like that too Sarah - I love to use two ribbons which have different textures so that there is something touchy feely about my cards hugs Karen x

Wishcraft said...

Your card is so pretty Sarah, lovely soft colours. I stuck with layering my ribbons too ;o)

I had this stamp - I think she's lovely but could never think of what to do with her, so she never got inked. I gave her away as candy in the end, seemed a shame for her not to be loved lol! Hugs, Lisa x
