Paper Dolls Challenge #8

Wow, it's been hard finding time to create now that the kids are out of school. I've also had a hard time locating my mojo lately.

Lee Anne posted last week's Paper Dolls Challenge. It's an awesome color challenge. There's still time to play with us. Check out her challenge here.

I really like the colors that Lee Anne chose for her color challenge. I knew when I first saw the challenge that I wanted to make my own pattern using Guide Lines and Guide Lines paper. After I made it, I wasn't sure what to do with it so I left it alone for a few days. This morning, I realized that I didn't have much time left to link my project so I cracked the whip and made my card. Here's what I finally made. (Sorry for the blurry picture. I was in a hurry.)

I've been wanting to try some of the really cool ribbon techniques that I've seen. I saw this awesome card by Heather and I had to give her ribbon technique a try. It wasn't easy at first, but then I finally got it going and I really love how it turned out. I'm definitely going to try this again.

Here's a close-up of my main image. I colored the clear bling with a brown permanent marker. Can you see the patterned paper I made for the background?

Here's the inside of my card.
