For the Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge 247 and Shopping our Stash 186-Love

I love this paper pad and I love this stamp. I love Brown and I especially love Orange. Tried a few different things here that I haven't tried. Used a Spellbinders scalloped frame die, edge only, to cut the scallops on the left of the striped rectangle then I wrapped the card with 3 layers of the ribbon.  I have to figure out how to do that better so there isn't any space, or else I need to get some thicker ribbon!  Then it needed something else, and the bling was exactly the right colors, so on it went.

Kinda busy.... but all of the paper was in the same pad, so stripes and argyle must go together, right?

  1. Hi, Diana.

    What a fun card! And, it's great to see you trying new techniques. :)

    Thanks so much for playing along with our OWH sketch challenge!

  2. Yay for trying new things! As for the ribbon, I think it looks fine. Another option I use is to tie another piece around the three, like to the bottom left of your oval. This will scrunch the ribbons together and you won't even notice the gaps ... it will look like you meant to do that!

    Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!

    1. Thanks for the ribbon hint! Going to try it on my next card.
