Ribbon Disaster AKA Fab N Funky #35
Don't look too closely at the ribbon on this card, I has a bit of a mis-adventure with it. I like to tuck the ends under, I don't like frayed edges or ribbon than comes unstuck. So I carefully wrapped the ribbon right round the front of the card. Well, what I thought was the front of the card. Turns out, I wrapped the ribbon round the whole card and I couldn't open the darn thing! I had to take the scissors to it, and although it's covered by a bow on one side, the other side's a little scruffy. Sigh...
Alright, 'nuff whining, on to the challenge! This week's challenge at Fab N Funky is to Use your Favourite Colours. Easy peasy! I went with a nice fall combo, rusty orange and green, perfect for a card for the teacher. Back to school is only a few weeks away (thank goodness!) and I'm planning on being prepared.
The cute dog stamp is from CC Designs and the other images are from a CTMH set called in the month of August.
Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Note: Sorry, forgot to add that I lifted this layout from a Paper Crafts magazine card - I keep a stack on hand for when I need some inspiration. In this case, I loved how the ribbon was threaded through the paper.
