Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge: Ribbon Galore!

Stamps: Paper Pretties 'Everyday Lily'. Cardstock: Soft Suede, Doodlebug DP, textured blue from unknown source. Ink: Memento black, Copics. Accessories: organdy and grosgrain ribbon, Offray ribbon roses, Tim Holz 'Tattered Florals' die, oval Nestabilities, SU WW punch.

Welcome to Wednesday's Paper Pretties Challenge! This week we are challenging you to use ribbon, but not just one ribbon or even two ribbons -- use three different ribbons!

My card this week is a sneak peek of another brand new stamp set Paper Pretties will be releasing on September 24th; this cute teen is called 'Everyday Lily'. She is the perfect addition to the Teen Scene which already features 'Just Because Zac' and 'Go Team'. Isn't Lily just what you need for those tween or teen cards?

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #72 inspired my card this week because it's so designed for ribbons galore.

Ribbon is an embellishment I adore and rarely is one of my cards without it. However, I tried to use ribbons in a slightly different way for this challenge -- can you find all three different types ribbons I used?

Be sure to enjoy the other Pretties' Gals interpretation of 'Ribbon Galore':

Then link your creation HERE so we can admire your take on the sketch and enter your name for a chance to win a free Paper Pretties stamp! You do not need to use Paper Pretties stamps in order to play along, but if you do, you will get a bonus entry into the drawing! Please be sure to mention our challenge and link back to the Paper Pretties blog in your project posting. If you upload to a public gallery please use the keyword PWC119.


  1. Your coloring of Everyday Lily is wonderful. I love the blue, pink and brown together. She looks perfect, great card! TFS

  2. great job jess...and Yes, I did find all three ribbons!!! :-)

  3. Lily is just too cute and I love how you leave the white to highlight, just perfect, how did you make that gorgeous flower out of ribbon, wow, very very effective, I love it, the colours just pop out in this card. Clever using the ribbon 3 ways, I have a fair bit of ribbon but don't use it often, this may just motivate me. Thanks for your beautiful comments on my blog, they mean the world to me. Melxxxx
