It's all about me...

Actually it's always all about my all-time card making obsession, but the post title is also the name of the current challenge over at Flourishes blog (FTTC54), that is oh so fun and easy... just use whatever makes you happy!
Well, there's no doubt that ribbon makes me happy. Luscious, big bows on my cards is what Chupa loves with all her crafty heart. That, and my latest craze - buttons & twine. Combined together, they are simply irresistible!
There's one more fun challenge that invited me to celebrate the ribbon day, and it's The Pink Elephant Challenge #54 - which is no more, no less but to use ribbon. Here ya go ladies, on your request - three ribbon-ey cards! :)

First one uses Kazan's sketch 46 from 2S4Y, and the beautiful, luscious colours of Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act17:

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; stamp: Hero Arts, Stampin' Up! (only part of the sentiment); ink: Versa Color Cloud White, Umber; ribbon: Sullivans; pearls: Kaisercraft; Cuttlebug & Textile embossing folder; button & twine: stash

This one is a CAS made for CC258: Soft Perfect Plums:

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, Grant; stamp: Inkadinkado (flourish), SU! (sentiment); ink: Versa Color Bark, ColorBox Wisteria; pearls: Kaisercraft; ribbon, flower: stash

...and the last one, a cheerful take on CAS54 - Wishing for Spring:

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, Grant; paper: Grant, digital printable; wheelbarrow image: me, sentiment: Flourishes; ink: Versa Color Black; black pen; ribbon: Sullivans; watercolour pencils: Belgrave; blender pen; twine, flowers: stash

The wheelbarrow is the newest design of mine, although I admit that it's pretty rough still. It was a quick sketch, and I'll polish it up when time allows. I'm planning on drawing a couple of mix'n'matchable seasonal "inserts", i.e. a bunch of wildflowers for spring, sheaves of wheat or pumpkins for autumn/thanksgiving, Christmas Trees for... Christmas of course. You get it. Does it sound like a fun set of digis? :)

Ok folks, I'll have to say bye for now, but I'll certainly be back tomorrow! Thanks so much for visiting today!
