Cheer Up!

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Karen Ostergard our challenge hostess for the month, finishes off her month with one last challenge.

For our challenge this week, Karen has asked us to use ribbon somewhere in our projects.

There was a time some years back, when nearly every card I made had ribbon somewhere on the card ... when adding ribbon to a card was popular. These days I seldom add it, so when I was trying to figure out what to do for this challenge ... I decided the easiest way to add ribbon to something was by adding it to a tag card. 

So for my card today I have created a Circle Tag Pop-up Card using Karen Burniston's Circle Tag Pop-up die set.

To decorate my card, I pulled out some stamps from Craftin' Desert Diva's that I had purchased when they had their closing down sale. I had put the stamps away for Christmas, so can finally start using them. The cute critters are from the Stormy Weather stamp set and the sentiment from the Rainy Days stamp set.

I used some fun rainbow paper from a paper pad from Sunny Studio Stamps.

Here is a close up view of the right hand side of my card.

For the front of my card I created a scene using the base of the tag for the sky. I used the sand/snow border from the Nature Edges die set for the grass. I then added a few more of the images from the Stormy Weather stamp set. The puddle comes from the Rainy Days stamp set.

While I was looking through my ribbon stash, I found some rainbow ribbon which was just perfect to use for this card to coordinate with all the rainbows on the card already.
