Indulge - Ribbon Carousel Challenge 35

So excited to be playing along with Ribbon Carousel this week as their Guest Designer for January!  This week, Laurel is inspiring us with this delicious Pinterest photo for Ribbon Carousel Challenge 35:

This is what I came up with!  Even though I don't use blue a lot, I love it with chocolate brown.  You'll have to ignore my pathetic excuse for a bow.  I'm pretty sad with ribbon bows, and twine bows are even harder but I decided it needed a bow.  Now I have to live with the consequences.  Hee, hee...

And to make it even more fun, our sponsor this week is Whimsie Doodles!  

Here’s a little about our sponsor: 

Whimsie Doodles is so excited to be sponsoring the new challenge!

Whimsie Doodles' digital stamp line features images that range from cute little boys and girls, to punny stuff, and everything in-between. We enjoy sharing lots of samples on our company blog, where we also post challenges and tutorials.

We are huge fans of Melyssa here at the RCC!  And can you guess why?  Aside from the fabulous designs and amazing artwork from the Whimsie Doodles team, Melyssa is the designer of the carousel in our logo!  The prize this week is One (1) winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Whimsie Doodles Online Store.
