Paper Garden Projects 4th Friday Challenge & Sketch Girl 17

OK, time for a double duty post....A little Paper Garden Projects and a little Sketch Girl : )

It's time for the Fourth Friday Challenge at Paper Garden Projects. This week we are having a color challenge, wanna see???

You have till midnight (EST) of Friday May 7 to add a comment at Paper Garden Projects Blog with the link to your project. We will draw one random winner for the prize.

The rules are:

It must be a newly created project for this challenge - but feel free to combine this challenge with any other ones out there.

The winner will be drawn randomly and announced the following Saturday.

In honor of Mother's Day, the prize is this lovely Rachelle Anne Miller Bundle of Joy stamp:

Now for my card:

I used my Antique Floral Clear Stamp Set to make a background on Kaisercraft Paper.

Let my give you a little tip for making the ruffled ribbon trim on this card. Here is the ribbon I used:

I simply snipped the brown middle stitch and then pulled it to make the blue ribbon ruffle. I added the ruffle to my card...with my left over ribbon I pulled the brown stitch from the middle - many different pieces of thin twine make up that stitch - so I used it to wrap around my card for a bow. All of that from 1 piece of ribbon!

All of the products mentioned are available and linked to Paper Garden Projects.

Time for a new and fabulous sketch from Sketch Girl. This week we're going to be twice as nice with 2 different sketches. Check them out:

Our sponsor this week is:

And now for my card:

Oh how I love pink, let me count the ways....ok everything I make is turning pink these days, maybe I need to move on to other colors : ) I used Prism Cardstock. I then cut American Crafts Dear Lizzy patterened paper into 4 squares using my Spellbinder Nestabilities. I added a Dear Lizzy rub-on and embellishment and some twine. I'm such a twine addict lately, want to wrap it around everything I make.

Awesome cards Amber. I know these ideas are floating around inside your head all the time just waiting to be picked for the next card!!!! I thought you did circles but you did SQUARES!!!! said...
