H2H Challenge: Using Ribbon

Here's my entry for the "Ribbon" challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week.

And I always like to make the inside of a card eye appealing too ...

This week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart was to use ribbon on a paper art project. 

You can see the blog entries HERE. So many creative people take time to make special paper items--cards, layouts, altered art -- and post their entries. They are so inspiring!

I used the Close To My Heart "Bliss" papers to create a thank you card for neighbors who have been so helpful in getting our mail when we go out of town. A big plate of homemade cookies will accompany this card to help them know how much they are loved.

The CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge has hundreds of designs, including this die cut flower -- I used Liquid Glass to adhere the flowers. If it hadn't dried so quickly and stuck so well, I would have lifted a couple flowers and placed them a bit better ... but practice makes perfect.

This is the first time I've used ribbon in a dual "band" and a duo of bows to accent a card.

The Opaque Pearls give the card a finishing touch for the flower centers and top accents.

My P&S camera bit the dust so I had to capture this card with my phone camera--not the best quality, and not so great at showing these special flowers, but thanks for "getting the picture" as best you can!

Now take a look at every's challenge entries and be inspired!  Happy weekend! I hope birds and butterflies are soaring around you.

Hi Jane, thanks for sharing your pretty Bliss card with us on H2H - I like the double edge ribbon - good choice with that pretty paper! Your cookies will have to be darned good to outshine your card!
