Bits o' Ribbon

Why is that the creativity finally hits Sunday night, when it's time to pack it up and get ready for the new week? Why, I ask you, does anyone know??? How frustrating is that! I made this card for Sharon's Friday Challenge... Stamp Simply #79 - You’ve Been Tabbed! The challenge is all about little bits of ribbon — ribbon TABS that is. Rather than adorning our cards with wrapped ribbon or bows, let’s just use a bit of ribbon and make ribbon tabs — wide, narrow, whatever! I chose to hang some bits of ribbon and also instead of a traditional tab of ribbon, I folded some ribbon over and incorporated it in with the flower. All this paper is from Basic Grey's Eva 6x6 Collection. Once a month I take a Basic Grey kit class with some stamp pals, the Basic Grey kits have really helped me to put patterns and mix papers up. This card is just strips of the Eva papers layered together, I know it's a little much with the patterns and the flower, but I think I like it! And OMG! -- not a Copic used! Finished card is an A2.

  1. Stunning card Jenny! I love these colours and that sentiment is fab! And those ribbons - how creative, especially intertwined with the flower!
    Hugs, Danielle

  2. Nice way to finish off the BG card - AND use some kit stuff!

  3. Great job and using kit stuff too!! LOVE the sentiment. I will be casing while all my Eva stuff is still out. Miriam

  4. I don't think the pattern paper is "a little much", I think you got a perfect combination, very well balanced and very pleasing to the eye. And I love all the little ribbon bits, you made a wonderful challenge card, except for the pink, lol. But I won't hold that against you. Great job, Jenny.

  5. Great card! Love the ribbon tabs, and the ribbon in the flower!

  6. Love the combination of papers you used, Jenny. Another inspiring work of art from you. My creativity is always best late at night - any night. So you are not alone...
