It's time for another fun challenge from The Ribbon Reel and this fortnight Keilly (owner of the Ribbon Reel shop and blog) is hosting the challenge and asks that you create a card, page or 3D item using "Newsprint". Here is the wonderful trio of pictures Keilly put together to inspire us for the next two weeks:
I decided to make a card using newsprint papers from Kaisercraft's Vintage Timeless collection.
When I saw the following inspiration board, I decided that the newsprint would work really well when combined with the colours Kraft, Yellow and Gray which also happens to be the focus of the current CR84FN challenge.
The main focal point of today's card is the yellow butterfly which is resting for a moment on top of the label that I made using Kraft cardstock, cotton lace from The Ribbon Reel and gray patterned paper. The butterfly is a 'wonderful wings' Spellbinders die cut. I created it by using several layers of yellow patterned papers from Glitz Design and then topped it off with some natural button twine and a pale yellow cherry blossom from The Ribbon Reel shop. I also stamped a lovely sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It With Style set onto a little banner I made from some gray polka dot patterned paper and attached to one of the wings of my butterfly.
I created a luxurious bow with some beautiful ivory silk ribbon from The Ribbon Reel and a cream vintage button from my stash. I used velvet trim and cream floral cotton lace from The Ribbon Reel and wrapped it around each corner of my card and then finished by adding a few cute little rub-ons to each side of the central patterned paper border.
That's all from me, but if you'd like to join us and create something with "Newsprint", then click here to visit the Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog. We would love to see you there! And if you're looking for some wonderful inspiration, then look no further than my Ribbon Reel Design Team mates. They are:
I'm also popping my card over to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC87. This week's sketch is by the sweet Renee Lynch and I followed it for today's card:
Have a wonderful week and I hope you manage to find lots of crafty time! I'll be back tomorrow to share a sweet little card for this week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge ;)
