Last night I made another ribbon wreath in red + orange + bright pink. I've seen these colors EVERYwhere on the Interwebz lately, and I was given a little push by my pal Mary Dawn when she made this card. As an added bonus, I broke into my box of Every Color Red, Orange and Pink Ribbon But The One I Need and used a bunch of them to make this:
Tonight I gave it a trim, layered it on a piece of A Muse red gingham paper, put it in a black shadow box frame, and ... took a glaringly poor photo of this:
Thank you for your comments on my previous attempts. I used thinner ribbons on this one and I like how it lays better. I agree the wider ribbons need a bigger space.
In other news, I'm planning a trip to Wal-Mart on Saturday, because one alert tweep told me they have the shadow box frames I need to make these, and they are less expensive than Mike's. The Wal-Mart near me makes me itch, but the one about an hour North of here is newer and cleaner and NICE. I never feel like I need to just get out of that one. That's also where I got the container thingies I use to hold all the accouterments for my Stamp Camps; you know ... scissors, rulers, adhesives, bone folders, etc. I might pick up another one if they still carry them. And I also need some BIG post-it notes. And I am SURE there will be things I didn't know I needed that I need. You know, to justify the gas burned to drive up there.
So, yeah, a trip to Wal-Mart is big news in my world. That's just sad.
Thanks for stopping by!
even more perfect than the previous perfect one! that gingham is ace!ReplyDelete
I love these colors, L :)ReplyDelete
That is too cute! I tried something similar in a smaller scale on a card once and liked the outcome but now I've got to try this! Thanks for sharingReplyDelete
Really like this one!ReplyDelete
I love it. Simple yet eye-catching. The colors and ribbons you chose would go with almost any decor (okay... maybe you could use it in that Goth den now that I think of it...)ReplyDelete
Seriously, great work!
GAH! Love it!!!ReplyDelete
And I know exactly what you mean about w-mart! I avoid ours at all costs...it's the smell! ugh. Maybe if we had a newer one...when I visit my family in Ohio, tho, well, theirs smells just fine! And it's older than ours, even! Unfair!
This is so freakin' cheerful! Love it. :)ReplyDelete
