Time for a Challenge at Crafty Ribbons!

Hello all!  I had a wonderful vacation this summer.  How was yours?  I traveled to sunny Manitoulin Island to spend two weeks with my parents.  It was wonderful.

It's challenge time at Crafty Ribbons, and for this challenge, the theme is Happy Birthday!

I created this Happy Birthday card using the Vintage Butterflies Ribbon - Keys in Creme.

I colored these Chrysanthemum digital images from Paper Garden Projects using my Prismacolor Premiere Pencils and OMS.  This was my first project using this method of coloring, and I had them finished and sitting in my basket for months before I decided to use them :)

Creating a bow with ribbon that is patterned on only one side can be very challenging.  I know this first hand lol.  However, if you make some various sized loops and stack them, then wrap them, you have something resembling a fine looking bow!  This technique works great.

On the front side and the inside of this card, I used a cut from the Cuttlebug Flourish Emblem Die.  On the inside, I cut it in half to spread it out over both inside pages, and added a scalloped oval die cut for the greeting :)

Don't forget to come and join the challenge over at the Crafty Ribbons Challenge blog for your chance to win some fabulous prizes!  And if you are looking for some one-of-a-kind ribbon and lace, come and visit the Ribbon Emporium :)  You won't regret the visit, I promise!
