Outlines - Ribbons and Bows!


Good Monday morning!  It's time for another Outlines challenge and this week the challenge is right up my alley - Ribbons and Bows!  I hardly ever make a card without ribbon or a bow!  Aside from the obvious green satin ribbon and bow, I used some yellow grosgrain ribbon to create the mat layer for my focal image, Candles Square Lg. (E401), which was colored using Copic and Spica markers.  I also added a bow to my button, using some green and white twine.  The sentiment is Happy Birthday Script (C-1050) The patterned papers are from Jillibean Soup's Spotted Owl Soup 6x6 pad, which perfectly fit with this week's Color Throwdown #145 challenge (Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz).

Please be sure to head over to the Outlines blog to get the details for participating in the challenge - you could win a $25 shopping spree in the Outlines Store!!  Also make sure you head over to each design team member's blog to check out their creations!
