The Ribbon Girl 'Pink and Blue' Challenge

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a FABULOUS weekend !! I am having a GREAT one !! I am thrilled to have been asked by my PTW teamies, Mary and Andrea aka The Ribbon Girl to be their GD for the January colour challenge on The Ribbon Girl Blog. Woo Hoo !!! :-)

There are fabulous prizes on offer this month ,,,,

This gorgeous ribbon kit from The Ribbon Girl

AND this fab £10 voucher to Lili Of the Valley :-)

We have recently had 2 new additions to the family, both girls, so I thought this colour combo would be perfect to make a little card and photo album for the happy parents :-)

The card was made using this oh, soo cute House Mouse stamp, this one is called Monica with Pacifier, coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I cut out the image with Spellbinders nestie circle and scalloped circle dies. The base card is plain white card inked with the stormy sky distress inks, I love the delicate look you get doing them like this. The papers are from Craft Creations and the lovely Gingham Ribbon, Button, Button Twine and perfect ‘Dummy’ charm are all from The Ribbon Girl, I used a Martha Stewart Scalloped Heart border punch, a Magnolia Doohickey Heart Swirl, some tiny rosebuds,flat backed pearls and oodles of Star Dust Stickles to finish.

The album was made using another House Mouse stamp ( surprise surprise ! :-) this one is called ‘A Birdie Told Me’ , made using the same basic products as the card and finished with a Bind It All machine.

I made this box to pop them in, again using the same basic products but this time using some gorgeous Siam Pink Vintage Style Seam Binding. I used a MFT Tag You’re It stamp and die set to make the tag and finished with a few Card Candy dots

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Mary and Andrea for inviting me along and to the team for welcoming me too :-)
