ATS Crinkled ribbon challenge + a giveaway!


All That Scraps' Wednesday challenge is to use crinkled ribbon on your card. How could I not enter this challenge? But I have to admit, I love making the crinkly ribbon more than I know how to tie it!

Here's my card using Cheeky Glamour from The Greeting Farm and the purple crinkly ribbon that I dyed using Dusty Concord distress ink. Isn't she sweet?

Truth be told, I had her colored and cut out quite a while ago and she was just waiting for the right time to make her appearance.

The background is a Purple Onion Design damask stamp that I just love. I think it goes perfectly with her vintage look.


I happen to have an extra Cheeky Glamour stamp that I would love to give to someone who will give her a good home. Simply leave me a comment on this post and tell me if you tried making your own crinkly ribbon. Or not. Just leave me a comment!

Random.org and I will be choosing someone on September 1st and I hope it's YOU!

Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Purple Onion Designs, Hero Arts 
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Hero Arts kraft notecard
Ink: Memento; Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint Distress inks; Versafine
Other: Copic markers, Nestabilities, rayon seam binding, half pearls

  2. I love your adorable card! That ribbon compliments her perfectly! Don't put me into the draw - she would look horrible if I tried coloring her with my feeble coloring skills!
