I have been hoping to enter this week's challenge at Wee Memories- how can I resist- sweets & ribbon!! :)
I've got lots of weddings coming up, so I thought this would be a good time to start on those cards.... My friend, Charlene, inspired me with her doily card, so I put my own spin on that.
I used May Arts crocheted ribbon, cut in 3 lengths & layered over vellum. Then I strung pearls (from Joanns) onto May Arts silk ribbon & added those to the top of each layer.
I attached the cake to some basic gray paper (capella 'mezzo')- it has a pretty wedding-y feel to it on it's own! I distressed with PTI tea dye inks & SU! close to cocoa to try to match the uncut side.
May Arts is sponsoring this challenge- and I want to encourage you to head over to their blog- they are having a comment-to-win-a-spool-of-ribbon (your choice!)!! That contest is open until Sept. 5th- AND open to international entries (hint, hint) so go get your comment in!
The Wee Memories challenge is only open for a few more hours- but you can head over there to see all the sweets with ribbon!!!
Thanks for stopping by- I'd love to hear what you think!
