Ribbon Carousel...Anything Goes with Party Time Tuesday

Hi and welcome to this week's Ribbon Carousel challenge where we are being joined by Party Time Tuesday! Our challenge this week is an easy one...anything goes! I wanted to keep this card rather uncluttered (for me...stop shaking your head ;), so I added some Ribbon Carousel ribbon and crocheted lace, a simple medallion and some silvery/shiny accents:

I used some elegant 1" Black Grosgrain/Satin Edge Ribbon to which I added that sparkly buckle. Under that I layered a length of 7/8" Natural Cluny Lace Oval Crochet Ribbon. The medallion was made with a Tim Holtz Rosette die and I added a tinge of Platinum Stickles to the tips. The pearl/rhinestone accent is from the wedding dept. at Michael's.

This week we are sponsoring the ladies over at Party Time Tuesday. Join them for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate from The Ribbon Carousel. And we are using the same challenge so you get a bonus this week. Play along with the ladies in ANYTHING GOES week, and link your creations to both challenge sites!

Your creation can be anything from cards, quilts, sewn items, paper crafts, paintings! *** Be sure to have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace, thread (basically anything that comes on a spool). ***
We'd love for you to join us this week! Here are the details:
  • Make your NEW creation following the ribbon carousel challenge of the week. Any submissions made prior to the challenge date will be deleted. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.
  • Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like Splitcoast Stampers, (use the keyword RCC47) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! (A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!)
  • Link up your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up, but don't worry, it will appear shortly.

    Come back the Friday after the challenge ends to see if YOU are a Top Spool!
