It's Sunday and that means it's time for another Red Hot Stamper's sketch challenge. I must say this challenge threw me a little! lol I happened to see Stamping 411's Color Inspiration #170 post and decided to use their colors. Then I needed to figure out what stamp set to use. Well, I needed something big to cover the open side. Ok, I got that part figured out, but then what to do for ribbon??? I didn't have any that was skinny enough to look good on what I had already done. That's when I came up with the idea to twist the seam binding ribbon to make it smaller. Voila! I managed to come up with this pretty card. I loved the soft colors and thought I would make it a sympathy for a fellow demonstrator who just lost a loved one.
If you're in a crafty mood why not give our challenge a try. You can head here to see a few other samples too.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
