Barbara: Seam Binding ribbon

We want to thank all who entered our 110th challenge at The Crafty Pad: Something Yummy for your tummy"!!! Again we had so many awesome entries. Please click   HERE  to see who was the lucky winner.

On to our next challenge: 111: A very simple one: "Use A Ribbon" on your project.  The DT was fortunate to receive ribbons from our sponsor this week: Crafty Ribbons to use on our cards. This seam binding ribbon is unique. You can use it as an ordinary ribbon or if you wet it, squish it together and let it has a totally different look. You can see this on my card this week.

Since my ribbon was green, it made me think of (and dream of) summer. I chose to use Debbie's new cat image with the sentiment: Lazy Days of Summer. I designed a simple tent card using a Spellbinder Nestability to cut out the center of the tent and a smaller one for the border. I cut out, glittered, and popped up one of the butterflies in the background to give it some dimension. I added the beads to carry out the green theme.
