Hello . . .

Happy Thursday Everyone!
Yesterday after getting all my computer work caught up,
I wanted to create a card using some of the fun challenges I spotted
out in blogland and here is the result . . .


I started out with the sketch challenge offered over on 


Next came the fun March challenge over at the Paper Sweeties Challenge Blog 
with this beautiful inspiration board.  Where I was inspired by the
pink tulips and the black & white sign board.


Last but not least was the March challenge at Outside the Box.   You are to share how you use RIBBONS on your creations PLUS at least one Memory Box items.

Here I've used the Memory Box 'Grosgrain Ribbon' die as well as made a pretty pink ribbon bow from satin ribbon purchased from Really Reasonable Ribbons.


Here's a close up so you can see there really are grosgrain
ribs on my paper die cut ribbons.  So realistic looking IRL!

After die cutting the Poppystamps Tulip Branch twice from scraps of different green designer papers, I die cut just the flower portion of the die using a scrap of hot pink card stock.  Then clipped off the flowers and glued them on top of the green ones.

I'm very pleased with the outcome and was able to
use up some scraps along the way!!

Challenges to share in:
Frilly and Funkie Challenge - Welcome Spring
Die Cut Divas Challenge #306 - Ribbons and Bows

I hope your week is going well!

As always . . .
