In the Doghouse!

Good Morning, nice dry, sunny and pleasant day outside but I am feeling sorry for myself as I am full of a cold, not had one all winter and when spring is almost here I get this one. Well onto my DT card today for the challenge at The Crafty Pad which is to use a ribbon. Our sponsor today is:

and the DT were each given two pieces of American Seam Binding Ribbon, by Crafty Ribbons, to use on their project. This can be used as Modern - just use as it is, or Vintage - spray with a little water until moist, scrunch up and leave to dry. For the modern part I wrapped one colour around the other to make a striped effect, then I scrunched some pieces and when dry ran a little line of thread through and made into three flowers. The image and sentiment used on my card are by Debbie of The Crafty Pad which I coloured with Copics, the papers are by Prima and K & Co, and the border was cut using a new Martha Stewart border punch. I would also like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - Four Legged Friends

Alphabet Challenge - R is for Ribbon

Meljens Designs - Include an Animal

Polka Doodles - Include three hand made flowers
