Totally Gorjuss 217 - Ribbon.

Good morning everyone. I can't believe it's January again already!

Our first challenge of 2014 at Totally Gorjussis "ribbon." How easy is that? After all most of us love ribbon don't we? And if you need another reason we're sponsored by The Ribbon Girl and if you're anything like me you won't be able to resist buying some of their gorgeous goodies.

One of the girls at work asked me to make a birthday card for her Mum who will be 70 later this month.

Here's what I came up with. Not sure I like it very much but I'm intending to give her a choice between this one and another one. She wants 70 on it but I won't add it until she makes her choice.

I used :-
Image :- Wildflower Meadow.
Sentiment :- Memorable Moments & For My Family.
Colouring :- Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz & Old Olive.
Satin stitched ribbon in Primrose Petals.
Card :- Primrose Petals & Old Olive.
Candy dots :- Melon Mambo.
Designer vintage faceted buttons.
All from Stampin' Up!

It's been a long time since I entered any challenges so I think it's time I made the effort again. I'd like to enter the following challenges.

Simon Says Stamp :- Something new - I used a new image and candy dots from Stampin' Up!
Charisma :- Birthday.
Allsorts :- Free and Easy.
Papertake Weekly :- Flower Power 20th August 2103.

Well after two days off work for New Year I was back to work yesterday afternoon and this morning. I'll catch up this afternoon as usual. I hope!

I'd love to hear what you think if you have time to leave a comment.
