Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #10

I'm just making it under the wire for Amy's Paper Dolls Challenge.  Come visit the Paper Dolls blog and play along with us. There's still time!

Here's Amy's sketch.  I love it because it's very "Dawn-esque".

I usually make cards exactly as the sketch. This time, I thought I'd rotate it to the side.  I recently aquired the Floral Fusion set from last year's CHA and I'm so excited about it. I had to ink it up right away!  I also wanted to try a new ribbon technique I've been thinking about.

I like how the ribbon technique turned out, but I had a hard time figuring out how to finish it and hide the ends.  I decided to just hide the mess behind some buttons.  Notice the In Bloom impression on the Simply Chartreuse? Love that impression plate!

Here's a sideview of the ribbon.

And the finished inside, of course.

Whew! So glad I was able to get my card posted before the link closes. Thanks for stopping by!
