The Ribbon PULL ~ Drunken Stampers Challenge #8

The challenge this week is a different take on an embellishment item! It’s a great way to use something that you may haven’t used in a while! Go to your ribbon bin/box….close your eyes…dig through and pull out a ribbon! OR if your ribbon is clipped up on an organizer or spools on a shelf…pick the 21st one! (that’s what I had Peg do!) NOW…go design a card AROUND this piece of ribbon! Yes, you can use the ribbon in your card but design your card with inspiration from this piece of ribbon.

NO! Don’t go back and pick another…don’t go back and take out all the weird ones and pick again. Don’t do 2 out of 3 or anything like that! Take your piece of ribbon; whether it’s themed, got paw prints on it, sequins and tassels on it or if it’s even a simple white ribbon….and make a card.

Here’s how the designated designers handled this challenge: (Some were gutsy and had their hubby grab a ribbon!)
