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 :)
