Create A Ribbon Border



I found a fabulous new challenge blog a couple of weeks ago. http://thenextlevelchallenge.blogspot.com The site is chock full of interesting information, tips, and techniques. I missed the first challenge, but was determined to participate in this one because Claire Brennan from http://waltzingmouse.blogspot.com created this really neat ribbon border technique. Being a very competitive person(my husband says) that's one reason I've taken to these challenges like a duck to water, because it is so much fun to see if I can follow the directions and create something comparable to the inventor. My card is not as elaborate as some of the other cards, but I think sometimes simple can stand alone. I enjoyed trying out this new technique, thanks Claire. If you visit here be sure to visit The Next Level, you'll like it.

Beverly - you did a terrific job with the ribbon frame - I must admit I love to see hoe others interpret the technique - and I am also a 'simple' fan so your card is right up my street!! Gorgeous!
