Ribbon Riley JUGS Challenge

Good morning! Today I'm playing along with a new challenge, "Just Us Girls" or JUGS... ;-) This is just their second challenge. I didn't get a chance to play in the first one, but I did use the sketch from week one and this week's technique challenge to use paper piecing. It was also optional to use pink somewhere on the card in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I decided to take it a step further and actually make an awareness card using Ribbon Riley {note: I am unable to provide a direct link to this stamp at Hanna Stamps right now because the store is closed for inventory}. I paper pieced the ribbon, and I added one of my homemade crochet awareness ribbons as an embellishment.

I hope your week is off to a great start! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  8. OMG Stephanie! I LOVE your card!! The colors, week 1's sketch...your sweet moose holding the ribbon you paper pieced...and the crocheted ribbon! This is just stunning and really captures breast cancer awareness. Your stitching is impeccable and the scalloped border under the oval is a perfect touch! Just LOVE all of it!! I would LOVE to have instructions for crocheting the ribbon. I would like to send one to my mom :)
