Challenge #21 - Use Dies or Punches & Ribbon

Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge here at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Please scroll down to the next post for the winners of the last challenge.

The theme for Challenge #21 is 'Use Dies or Punches & Ribbon'.

Create a card, layout, multi media piece, tag, ATC, hair bow, you name it. Just be sure to follow the theme above and use ribbon/lace or trim somewhere on your project.

We are thrilled to have Whiff of Joy as our sponsor for this challenge.

Whiff of Joy is situated in the heart of Europe (Switzerland).
Whiff of Joy specializes in natural, deeply etched red rubber stamps, die cuts and other card making goodies, all of which are designed specifically for stampers by a stamper.  Whiff of Joy works hard to exceed your expectations both in quality and service.
Share our passion for creating homemade gifts and cards. Express your love and appreciation for your loved ones by surprising them with a self-made gift with a Whiff of Joy stamp.  You will always be able to highlight a magical moment in somebody’s life.


Whiff of Joy is offering the fun stamp shown below to one randomly selected challenge participant. How awesome is that!!


Here is a little inspiration from our design team for challenge #21 to get you started. All of the sample projects include images from Whiff of Joy and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

We will also be drawing a random winner from all the entries to win the terrific image shown at the top of this post from Whiff of Joy. How cool is that!!! We will be announcing the winners on April 15th.

Here's what you need to do:

* Create a new project using the posted theme. A layout, card, ATC, home decor item, hair bow, or anything your can think of.
* You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide newly designed projects. No back-linking please.
* All projects must also include some sort of ribbon/lace/trim.
* Post your project on your blog or an online gallery (using code RRR21) and link it here with the Inlinkz tool below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
* You have until April 13th at 11:59 PM Eastern time to enter your projects.

Thanks so much for playing and good luck.

PLEASE consider turning off your word verification.
It would be a great help to us if you would consider turning off your word verification if it's active on your blog. To do this is really easy and all you need to do is go to Customise > Settings > Comments > then scroll down to where it says comment moderation and select always (this won't stop anybody leaving you a comment but they won't show on your blog till you approve them). Then scroll down to show word verification for comments? and select No.
We love to visit your blogs and leave comments on all the terrific entries, but the word verification really slows us down. :o)
