Ribbon Carousel Challenge 6: Sketch

Hi friends! I hope you are all having a great week so far! I'm all thrown off schedule because for this month, hubby's work schedule is different. I keep telling the kids we can go do things that actually happen the following day like story time. Whoops!

It's time for another Ribbon Carousel Challenge! YAY! This time, the lovely Danielle Lounds gave us a sketch to work with. I love sketches! For me, it's the hardest part of making a card. I struggle with layouts constantly.

To play along, just follow the sketch and make sure you have some sort of ribbon, twine, trim, or something that comes on a spool on your creation. Link it up to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge post for challenge #6 by June 13 at 11:59pm to be entered. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's the card I made for this challenge. I decided to combine this challenge with The Greeting Farm's Royal Challenge. This week, the theme was fairy tale. I think you can tell where my inspiration came from, The Little Mermaid. Of course, my Mermaid Anya had to be inked up for this challenge. She's probably my most used TGF stamp. :) PS This seam binding was hand dyed and given to me by Savannah. I was on Skype with her one night and she said that it was too dark and she'd never use it. Then, lo and behold, here it is!

Have a great day everyone! Don't forget to go to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog and check out all the other DT members!
