Use Ribbon Challenge at Squigglefly :)


Over on the Squigglefly blog this week's challenge is to Use Ribbon on Your Card or Project - nice & easy, most of us like using ribbon, I know I do & have boxes of the stuff overflowing all over the place lol. For my card I used the gorgeous new Shy Bear image by Lynne Stansbery called "Birthday Baking".  I used my pearly paints which I haven't used for ages & it made a nice change.  I paper pieced the curtains & used Perfect Pearls for the icing.  (I have put some pearls for the cupboard handles now but forgot before I took the photo - I'm always doing that lol).  The finishing touches are the ribbon (of course), gems & I used 3 punches: EK Success border punch,  circle & flower & the greeting is from Craftwork Cards (the paper is digi but I can't remember where from).  I hope you'll be able to play along & check out the Squigglefly images - they are so diverse with lots of designers so there's definitely something for everyone & you can always grab a freebie & "try before you buy".

I'm entering this card for these challenges: 
The Crafty Pad - Ribbons & Flowers
PaperPlay - Anything Goes!!
One Stitch At A Time - Sketch or a Little Pink
Challenge Up Your Life - Celebrations
Hand Stamped Sentiments - Watercolouring
