Bah! Humbug! Challenge --- Ribbons!!


The creative ladies at Bah! Humbug! gave us a very fun challenge this week!  RIBBONS!  I love ribbons almost as much as I love papers so I was looking forward to doing this card.  Finally last night I had time to sit down with rolls of ribbons.  So many ideas and this card was the outcome. 

There are three metallic ribbons in a simple woven pattern.  To cover the raggedy edges I mounted a 5x7 (inches) mat with a 4x6 opening over the card.  This actually makes the card ready to pop into a 5x7 frame! 
The sentiment is from the lovely stickers I received in the spot prize right here at Bah! Humbug!  I just might do more of these for the holidays!  Heaven knows I have enough ribbon to use up!  Those after-Christmas 70% off sales are irristable!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Be sure to hop over to Bah! Humbug! to see the DT's beautiful creations and join in the fun!  I hope the spring weather is gorgeous where you are and that your days are happy.

Gorgeous Barb! This is more of what I originally planned to do for B!H! but turned around and went in a totally different direction. LOVE the weaving and the ribbons are gorgeous! xxD

oh love this Barb. Those colours are just so rich looking. Very very clever use of ribbon and so effective. Lovely to see you using something from your spot prize too. You never know you might get pulled from Santa's hat again before the end of the year.
Hope there no volcanic ash to contend with next time.
