The Ribbon Reel #60 Baby Blessings


Hey there!

{Delighted that this was selected for Spotlight Artist at the City Crafter Challenge on 8/20/13}

It's time for a new challenge at The Ribbon Reel. Sarah is our host and she would would like us to create a card for a BABY inspired by the photograph using the colors in the inspiration photo plus Ribbon and Twine of course. :-)

Here is what I have to share for you today! 
I created a mini shaped card. I don't make these too often so it was nice to change things up a bit. I took the direction of the zebra rug and decided to use a sweet little Zebra from Paper Smooches Zoo Crew.

I created a double bow using these supplies from
The Ribbon Reel:
Below you will find the inspiration photo! I can't wait to see what you create!

Please head over to The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to see what the other talented ladies have created for you.  We hope you join us in the gallery over the next two weeks for your chance to win some Ribbon Reel goodness. 

I am joining in at City Crafters Challenge - Blessings, Sunday {Fun}day - Linky Party, Link It Up Tuesday - Linky Party, Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes. 
Thanks for stopping by!
