Hi everyone! I'm hosting this week's Just Us Girls Technique Challenge. I chose to challenge everyone to use up your ribbon scraps. I have a jar full of colorful ribbon scraps and I do use them, but I have so many I really need to use them up more!
This card is also for the Pretty Palette challenge. I love the richness of these colors!
This is what I came up with for this challenge. I chose to use the Seas the Day cut file from My Time Made Easy. I cut it out of cream cardstock then adhered the chocolate, saffron, and red grosgrain ribbons to the back, covering up the openings. I love the way this looks! I added a piece of chocolate chip cardstock for the pole and a put another ribbon scrap on top for the flag. The button adds some interest. I sponged some clouds and I wished I would have added a horizon. Looking at it now, I realized that what was missing! Lastly, I drew in some birds with a fine point marker. The red pattern paper is a retired SU one called Cerise. The sentiment is from MTME called Sign It.
