365 Cards Day 242 Ribbon Frenzy

So today's challenge, and for once it is actually today! is to use 7 different ribbons on your card. So inspired by the rebel DT Gloria, I actually used 8 different colours, 3 times each. I suspect 24 ribbons is going a bit beyond the 7, but never mind! I wrapped the ribbon lengths around a piece of foam board with the end colours also wrapped around the top & bottom edges to make a sort of rainbow topper (ribbons courtesy of a mixed pack from Crafty Ribbons of Blandford Dorset). It's all mounted on card from Puffin Crafts (East Dulwich - they were closing down but aren't any more which is great) with an Inkadinkadoo stamp Peace on Earth on which I used pretty pastel glitter green flock.
Sounds vile huh, but I think it turned out quite well!


  1. This is really an awesome take on the challenge, what a ton of work! I may have to croppy-cat this someday, or at least be inspired by it. LOVE IT! WOW!

  2. LOVE does reminds me of a rainbow!

  3. Simply fabulous. Definitely going to keep this idea in my mind. :)

  4. WOW! You ARE a rebel. Sit next to me! LOL I love that rainbow card. Just fabbie!

  5. You know, I don't think you can ever have TOO many ribbons! This is beautiful I really love what you did. especially the ribbons on foam board. i love the dimension. Great job!
