Allsorts challenge week 367- Fancy Bows

Good morning, another Saturday and another new challenge for you at Allsorts ,
This week it has been chosen by the lovely Wendy and it is...
Fancy bows or a different way to use ribbon, quite apt as our sponsor this week is...
Here is my card and I have chosen a different way to use ribbons.
The ribbon used here is Crushed Curry by SU.

5.25 x 4.25 tent card, a smaller piece of white scrap card die cut with the Poppy Stamps -
Sparkle burst stars die.
Ribbon adhered to the back of the die cut by one means or another.
A piece of the ribbon across the bottom of the die cut card and then attached to the basic card.
Woodware sentiment stamp punched with SU punch.

So my different way to use ribbon, is to use it as backing, now this is different for me, but I am certain that someone will have done it before.
As I have used a piece of scrap card I will also be entering this card in the Snippets Playground when it opens tomorrow.
Do pop over to the challenge blog and see the lovely creations from my Team mates.
Thanks for looking and hope you all have a great week.

  28. Your idea has worked a treat. Beautiful CAS look to your card. My sister and I both had green stripped dresses as kids which we hated. when sis out grew hers it got handed down to me so I had to wear the wretched things for ages. Seem to recall they had cream picot lace edging on the neckline and short sleeves. Hugs Mrs A.
