Okay friends, this week we are doing ribbon! Check out all the stunning creations at Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog (whew, is that a MOUTHFUL or what?) but promise to come back and see me, K? Breathtaking aren't they?

I never seem to start on my challenges in advance - LOL; so on our way home from our girly girl trip this weekend, I was planning in my head what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to let the ribbon be the background AND I thought Robyn and her balloons were the perfect opportunity for more ribbon! So, the base card is Kraft; then I added another layer of Kraft with dimensionals and used 4 colors of saddle stitch ribbon from Papertreyink. Yummy!

I stamped Robyn on GKD white and colored with Copics. I stamped a 2nd set of balloons which I cut out and adhered with dimensionals after adhering ribbon for each balloon - lots of dimension going on with this card. The perfect little girl's birthday card - and seriously, wouldn't YOUR cheeks be all pink from puffing to blow that candle out? LOL

Won't you play along with the Ladybugs and create your own card with ribbon? Be sure to check out the deets HERE!

Thanks for stopping by; don't forget to check back later this week when I post a few pictures from our girl's weekend away - ahhhh...blissful!

Hugs, ~M.
