CAS Twine meets Inspiration...


Wow!! Its three weeks already! Last week at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge, we asked you to add on the layers with your shabby chic creations and this week, you’re going simple, Clean and Simple that is. Clean and Simple is all about the design – having white space but that doesn’t mean you can’t fancy it up with ribbon!


For my card today, I've decided to use this week's Fall to Layout sketch which perfectly with the TSG set "Bug Me Anytime" that I've watercolored with Tombow Markers and then added Diamond Stickles to the edge of the dragonfly's wings. Because I've had so little time this last week I decided to combine the TSG challenge with the Ribbon Carousel Challenge.(I'm normally done my DT cards a few days early and today, I'm writing up this post just a couple of hours before the post goes live) - can you tell I've been busy?    This week's TSG challenge is an inspiration piece (see pic below).  I loved the colors in the inspiration pic so I tried to find some DP that had the same colours and decided to use the My Mind's Eye DP from the Happy go Lucky line.  Love it!!!  With the new "CAS-ual Friday" challenge blog, I knew I wanted to participate and use their challenge this week which is using Buttons and Twine. Easy peasy considering one of our requirements of the Ribbon Carousel Challenge is to use anything that comes on a spool... And I love my Baker's Twine... A little birdie has told me that tons of ribbon will be added to the Ribbon Carousel website any day now.  WAHOO!!!

 


*** Please remember that your creation must have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace (basically anything that comes on a spool) to qualify to become a "TOP SPOOL" at The Ribbon Carousel Challenge.  If you are uploading to any online gallery, use the keyword RCC3 so that we can find your project.
