Puppy Party

I had a bit of time tonight and wanted to create a cute card for my sisters birthday that is coming up soon.

I used the sketch from Mojo Mondays challenge. I really wanted to challenge myself and as per usual I sat there staring at paper and then came up with this idea to use the ribbon as the tall vertical layer in the sketch. I think it turned out ok!

I was able to incorporate the challenge from Practical Scrappers, a new to me challenge which was exciting for me. The ribbon was hard to work with ... I used curling ribbon and getting it to loop and stick was not fun ... but in the end it looks like a puppy all rolled in ribbon and that was the goal. :)

I was also able to incorporate the `Cute and Cuddly` theme from the Pollycraft Monday Challenge blog, also new to me!

So two new excellent blogs to keep an eye on for me and a great sketch to work from so ├Čt was a successful evening overall.



Sorry the image is a little dark ... I`m not quite sure why! :)
