See that badge??? Isn't it cool? Yup, Corinna McGregor has started a Challenge blog called the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog in honour of her Ribbon Carousel which is a fabulously amazing Ribbon Storage System (which I must say is the best ever for ribbon lovers like me). And guess what!!! Corinna has not only asked me to be on the design team but to be the "First Mate" aka Team Co-ordinator and I must admit this is an honour considering the rockstar Design Team that Corinna has assembled to be the "Carousel Crew".
Today is the first week of the challenges and Tuesday will be our "Challenge" day on a weekly basis.
For this week's challenge, we want you to get "Inspired". The Ribbon Carousel is gorgeous!! So we've decided to see what inspires you by it.
Is it the Black, white, and a pop of colour? Is it the ribbons on the Carousel (monochromatic)? Or those polkadots? Or even a combination of the colours?
Can you tell what inspired me? LOL... I love colour and I rarely shy away from it... I love the bright vibrant ribbons in the inspirational photo combined with the polkadots as well as the stripes. So I pulled out some older Echo Park DP, this cute Stella called "Suck it up" from Stamping Bella and coloured her up with my Tombow Markers. If you know me at all, you'll know that I use the phrase "Suck it up Princess" on a regular basis so this Stella is definitely me. I thought this would be a fun card for someone who needs a little bit of encouragement. And of course, I used my handy dandy Baker's Twine on my card (after all, this is a Ribbon Challenge blog so you knew it was going to be somewhere). The layout has come from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge that I have flipped on it's side so that I could use this image.
*** Please remember that your creation must have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace (basically anything that comes on a spool).
We’d love for you to participate!!! Make sure you link up with us using InLinkz at the bottom of the post on the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog. If you are uploading to an only gallery make sure you use the keyword RC1. Remember – that you don’t need a blog to participate in our challenge. Each week we will have a “Top Spool” !!
