PDCC62 with Julie Ranae

Finally things are back to normal and I get to play with my fave weekly challenges again over at the Play Date Cafe. This week there is yet another gorgeous inspirational photo with such a fun and bright color palette, here is what it looks like:

One of my New Years resolutions is to use more of my ribbon. I hoard ribbon, I covet ribbon, I LOVE ribbon...I just have to use it more. So that's what I did, as much as it pained me to cut the pretty ribbon, I used it. :) Here is what I came up with:

I drew the heart and cut it out and then adhered some tacky tape to the front surface. Then I took two different colour pink ribbons and alternated them on the heart front to cover it. Next I drew a black rectangle on my card front and added pink zigzag stitches over top. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I first stamped it in pink and then stamped it again with black over top and slightly off, to give it a fuzzy to the eye look. The final touch was pink rhinestones in the corners and popping the heart up with pop dots.

  2. Oh what a great idea to use ribbon!! I'm a hoarder too! Love the simplicity of this!

  3. Julie...you and I have something wonderful in common...besides The Play Date Cafe being my favorite challenge ; ) I TOO am a 'collector' : )
    of ribbon! In fact, each year rather than make a resolution, I set a creative goal to do something new. Last year it was BOO (see my blog sidebar)...this year, I will be using more of my ribbon stash...will be making a badge for that soon, so make sure you come get it!
    NOW....this is a great entry for this week's challenge and a creative design to be sure!
    Here's to seeing you as much as possible in 2011 in The Cafe!
