Fast Friday

Short and fast post. Quick and simple card.  Playing along with Play Date Color Cafe Challenge 97 (colour splash with RED - HAD to play along, my red soul made me) and Celebrate the Occasion 28 (sketch - adjusted a bit because I just couldn't pleat the ribbon - completely incompetent).  Thanks to all the Design Team members for the fabulous inspiration!

ETA - thanks to Yvette for the double sided tape suggestion.  I tried that for about 30 seconds with some grosgrain ribbon, couldn't get it to work, threw it aside in disgust and grabbed the velvet ribbon instead.  Felt quite incompetent.  I will try it again with wider tape... I couldn't find it in the disaster that is my craft room right now!




Thanks for stopping by! To all my North American readers, have a great long weekend!
Glenda

  3. I love your card. I wonder if you used double sided tape if you could pleat the ribbon. It might be fun to try. But great card! thanks for sharing with us at CTO. -Yvette
