The Paper Shelter Challenge #174 - Ribbon, floss and/or twine

It's time for another challenge from The Paper Shelter and this week we would like to see you use ribbon, floss and/or twine on your projects. A really simple one this week that everyone can join in with, don't you think?! Except it wasn't very easy for me as I had some many ideas swimming around in my head, I couldn't decide on one!

Instead of me choosing, I asked my boyfriend to pick an image from my pile of printed digis from The Paper Shelter and he chose this gorgeous image, Cirque. I think he must have been inspired by an episode of Grimm we were watching earlier that day in which Rosalee joins a Wesen circus to find out who killed two young girls. (If you don't watch it, it's a fabulous series based on the Grimm fairy tales - go check it out!).

Anyway I used the colours of Rosalee's performing outfit as the starting point for my card, added lots of stars and some ribbon of course. I totally love how this one came out!

  1. This is fabulous. This is the best card I've ever seen made with this image. This is better than great, it is wonderful, magnificent, awesome... This is a GREAT GREAT card. The theme is carried through on the papers and embellishments. It is, by far, the number one card! The colors are truly fantastic and the starts across the top are great. And look at the sentiments and they have stars on them. What an awesome theme you did and you carried it right through with your border punch and the diecuts...Wow. This is my favoritest card for the whole year! XXOO, Gail
