When not making cards for anything specific in the near future, I sometimes make cards for various occasions to keep on hand. I seem to be in a "green" mood lately ... maybe belatedly because of Earth Day!? This DP is from a 12x12 sheet that is destined for a child's birthday card, and I thought I'd cut a section away to use in a card for embellish magazine's butterflies and black, green and kraft color challenge. Today's card is a two-fer as it's also for the FTL91 sketch challenge. The frond is another of my quarter stamp sets from Mega Meet. This set included an outline and solid image. I stamped the outline a few times in green on the green DP, then stamped the solid image in green, and outlined that in black. I'd never used ruffled ribbon in a card before, and it was a fun technique. I fudged a bit as I didn't locate the video tutorial on the technique until after I'd finished the card. The video's here - compliments of Ashley Cannon Newell. Sometimes I have an alternative motive for posting links ... it's often so that I can easily find things later, LOL!
