JUGS #149

 
This week's JUGS challenge is brought to us by Lisa and she is challenging us to use ribbon scraps.  Here is a link to the Gina K video describing the technique.

I had a piece of black and white polka dotted ribbon that I wish I had more of (it was a dollar store find and none of them in my area carry it any more) and since I love black and white cards, it was perfect for this week's challenge. 

Pulled out my favorite Flutterby butterfly die by Verve and this cute sentiment was perfect for the corner space.   A nice and simple card which was lots of fun to make :)  The rest of the Design Team and our August Guest Designer Jen, have created some wonderful samples of this technique to get you inspired.  You can see them all over on the JUGS blog.

So, if you want to use up some of your ribbon scraps, simply create a new card and post it to the JUGS challenge linky and you could be selected as Chick of the Week!

Thanks for popping by today and have a great weekend.  Kids and I are just returning from a week of camping with some friends which was beyond delightful :)  Trailer camping is the only way to go as far as I'm concerned LOL!

Have a great weekend :)
