Ribbon Carousel Challenge 36

So excited to be back again with the fabulous DT at Ribbon Carousel!  This week's challenge is a sketch!  My favourite kind of challenge!

I altered the side panels just a smidge and used martini olives as the inspiration for my colours.  The strip across centre HAD to be ribbon so grabbed this gorgeous satin edge ribbon from Ribbon Carousel.

Danielle Lounds was gracious enough to share her “Go To Sketches” with us, so you’ll see them throughout the year.  This is a fabulous sketch to use with the images provided by our fabulous sponsor this week….

Some Odd Girl is a digi and clear stamp company based in the tiny town of Fennville, MI. Opening its virtual doors in January 2010, Some Odd Girl started off with just digi stamps but has grown into its own line of clear stamp sets too! Bringing a unique and fun style to anything you want to get crafty with :) Some Odd Girl is owned and operated by a one woman show who took her love of crafting to heart and built a dream.

One lucky participant will win 3 free digis of their choice from the Some Odd Girl store.

Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings!
 *** Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a chance to play along this week.
