Crafty Ribbons 'Circles' Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) I am here with a very 'On Trend' Nautical Card ,,, have you seen how many nautical crafty products are floating around at the mo',,, a whole sea of them hehehe :-)

We have some changes a' happenin'  over on the Crafty Ribbons Challenge,, we are now going weekly so you will have twice as many opportunities to win some gorgeous ribbons ! :-)

We are also welcoming a new girl to the team,, welcome aboard Pauline ! :-) Pauline also designs for the Craft Stamper Magazine and has recently started a blog so please drop by and 'follow' :-)

This week it's Charlotta's turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,,

so circular shaped creations, circles used on your creation, whatever you like ,,please don't forget to add a ribbon too :-)

Ali is giving away a fab selection of blue ribbons this week

I decided to make a circular card and used some of my fave RED/WHITE Saddle Stitch Ribbon from the Crafty Ribbons Store 

I love the way this turned out ! To make the card stand without rolling I chopped a little bit off the  bottom of the inside to make it straight, though I did toy with leaving it so that it would roll with the waves :-)

Apologies for the photo's, I have a new comp and haven't quite got the hang of photo editing, though I am trying ,,, :-)

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous creations so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them :-)
