I got busy and made a challenge card that needed to be clean & simple as well as use In Colors. I adore the new In Colors, they are so bright and cheerful!

Having Fun With Ribbon

This card is for a challenge to use ribbon in a fun way!! I simply punched out a circle and attached loops of ribbon to it with heavy adhesive and glue dots. Then I punched out another circle in Daffodil Delight and ran it thru the Softly Falling embossing folder for the texture. The ribbon stem and leaves just gave me grief but I finally won and got them adhered down!!!! Hahaha!! Sometimes it is a fight!

Powder Pink card base - 11 x 4 1/4, scored and folded at 5 1/2
Daffodil Delight layer - 5 1/8 x 3 7/8
Whisper White layer - 5 x 3 3/4
Whisper White sentiment strip - 4 1/4 x 3/4
Basic Black layer - 4 1/4 x 7/8
