crafty pad challenge - ribbon

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope that you are well and enjoying a lazy Sunday...
This morning I am sharing with you a card for my DT project for the crafty pad... The challenge that we have this week is ribbon - something also close to my heart... There are very few that I don't like and have it in all manner of shades and widths and textures! As crafters I bet we are all like this! You can never have too many...

The sponsor for this weeks challenge is Crafty Sentiment Designs and the winner will get 3 digi images of their choice

and the second sponsor is Crafty Individuals

and the 2nd winner will get:
1pack of 6x6 Seaside Themed Backing Papers
1 A4 glossy sheet of Secret Garden Themed Toppers

So I hope that you will join us and show us your creations using ribbon!

So on to my card...
My card today is using the stamp 'dress form trio' and I love it... I know I say that about every image I use but they are so great to work with, I have teamed this with the newly released DSP packs and I have chosen to work with the pink and red tones - 'strawberry sundae' I have loved using these papers... and I also love the styles that are included in the pack...

I have chosen 3 for my card this morning and teamed them with the dress form trio set that I adore...
I have teamed the card I have created with my Stampin Up! card stock and ink and I have to say they look good together...

I love vibrant colours as we step in to summer and the warmer weather makes an appearance!
So for my card I have used a black panel and then a mat layer of the DSP... I printed the DSP and then put the papers back into the printer and printed the images of the dress forms over the top of the coloured DSP. I then carefully cut around these and tried to keep the same border all around.

As the theme is ribbon this week I have included two different colours to the main panel of my card... I have added black grosgrain ribbon to the left hand side of the card and across the bottom. I then added two tabs of cherry cobbler seam binding to the sentiment panel and two tabs to the black mat panel attached to the card blank.
I included three gems to the top right of the card and then attached dress forms that I glued to the left hand side of the card... Another card that I am really pleased with - loving the printed DSP and think the dress form images are great.
I hope that you like my card and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog...
