Challenged! - Birds, Ribbon and Embossing

I think I am weird as I’m not really into ribbon. I hear lots of papercrafters go wild for it but I seem to have accumulated a tangled boxful without even trying. And I actively dislike bows!

Seeing the ‘Ribbon or Lace’ challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, was the spur I needed to untangle some ribbon and use it up. I layered them and used two! To avoid over-frilliness, I folded the ribbon and secured it with a brad.

The ideas for the rest of the card came from other challenges: birds at Sunday Stampers and embossing  at

Really pleased we have inspired you Marina to start using some of your ribbon stash and I must say it looks fabulous on your card. The stamped image of the birds looks tremendous.

Thanks for sharing with us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
