Belli Challenge #84 - Ribbon

It's time for another Belli Challenge! This week our challenge is to use ribbon, which is not really much of a challenge for me! I LOVE ribbon on cards. We also have a sponsor this week - Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. The sentiment and birds on the limb image are both digital images that Korin at Sweet 'n Sassy provided to us.

My background panel is from a Webster's Pages 6x6 pad - A Sweet Life. I thought it went well with the birds on a limb image. I cut the limb and birds out, colored them with Copic markers and popped them up with some foam tape.

The background of my sentiment panel was airbrushed while it was still in the Nestabilities Labels 9 die. I matted it on some brown Ruche paper from WorldWin and used a slot punch to create some slots to run my ribbon through. The ribbon is Terracotta Tile satin from Papertrey Ink. I created my bow and tied my button to it using some twine. The finished card size is 5.5" square.

Please play along with us this week by creating a card or other project with ribbon and entering it using Mr. Linky on today's Creative Belli Challenge post. If you upload to Splitcoast Stampers or Papercraft Planet, make sure you use the keyword CBC84 so we can find your project.

Be sure to head over to the Belli blog to check out what the rest of the Belli girls, including our two newest Belli girls, Melisa Waldorf and Darsie Bruno, have done!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love that background paper, and you had such a great idea to cut out the tree branch and birdies and add them to the paper. Love that gorgeous button on the bow and your sentiment and how it is attached to the ribbon. Beautiful card!
