Ribbon Carousel Challenge 37 - non-traditional

At the Ribbon Carousel Challenge this week, we’re changing things up in a Non-traditional kinda way!  Suzanne is challenging us to use NON-Traditional colors for our creations.  Making a valentine card?  How about NOT using red or pink, or not too much of it anyways?  Creating a gorgeous winter scene?  Try it with creams instead of whites.  Whatever you’re making….try a non-traditional palate as a challenge!  Here's my non-traditional love card - not an easy task for me I tell you!  So focused on love=red because I LOVE red.  Check out this fabulous wired net ribbon I used for my background.  Was feeling unusually brilliant when I figured that out!  ;)

So, what else can we do in a Non-traditional manner this week? How about a JOINT challenge (One challenge, two sponsors on two challenge sites, twice as many chances to win) with our amazing sponsor this week, the fabulous Paper and Such!  

Paper and Such is an online store that just opened in May of 2011.  Shortly after opening, we decided to begin our own stamp line, and it's been nothing short of exciting.  Our stamps are clear photopolymer, and are made the USA. Our HOT SHOT line is a line of chicken stamps - if you haven't seen them, be sure to check them out.   We are constantly adding to our stamp line, and love to hear what our customers want.

Paper and Such will be giving one lucky randomly drawn participant a $15 gift certificate to their store!  And…..RibbonCarousel.com is sponsoring their challenge this week, so there is twice as much inspiration and twice as many chances to win!  And yes, you can enter your creation here AND at the Paper and Such challenge.  Be sure to check out the blog for the rest of the fabulous DT samples!

***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 can play along!  Have a great week.
