May Your Day Bubble Over With Fun!

It's all about ribbons and bows for this week's challenge over at Stamping with Dragon! Let me just start off by saying that ribbons and bows are probably my most dreaded nightmare when it comes to crafting... I can barely tie a bow if my life depended on it! The plus side of my lack of bow-tying skills is that I'm always trying to find creative ways to use ribbon. I normally use it as an accent on cards and will sometimes embellish it with some bling. I kept it pretty clean cut with my challenge card, though, just by using it as a fun accent.

Papers from this card came from the Bold Basics Recollections paper pad. I used some white zig-zag ribbon as a fun centerpiece to divide the die cut and the sentiment.

I used the super fun Birthday Tickets digital stamp set to use as a sentiment on my card. As soon as I saw this sentiment I just knew there had to be a fish on here somewhere! :)

I gave this cute little fish some scales by embossing him with the Spots and Dots embossing folder using my Cuttlebug. 

One lucky winner of this week's Ribbons and Bows challenge will win their choice of four images from Dragon's Lair Designs!
