Follow Along...

Hey there, I'm almost done with the Hope You Can Cling To card drive...just a couple more cards and that will be it.  I have really enjoyed all of the challenges!  Edna's challenge, Frilly Paper Ribbon, is to use what we got.  She wants us to recycle some tissue paper, break out the crepe paper or convert a strip of discarded designer paper into a frilly ribbon to adorn the card.

I'm using an Our Craft Lounge set for this card called Eiei Hello.  This little cow is way too cute and super easy to color!  The image was stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers.  The paper ribbon thing had me stumped so I took a strip of striped DP and crinkled it up.  I ran it through a paper crimper half a dozen times crinkling it in between.  I taped it to the back of a piece of black card stock like a ruffle. 

I'm not exactly sure if it looks like a ribbon, but I sure do like how this card turned out!  The sentiment was stamped on the background panel and three rhinestones complete the card.  Tomorrow is Halloween so I'll be too busy to work on cards.  I hope to see you back here in a couple of days!  Don't let the little ghosties and goulies scare you!  Happy Halloween!
