2RB Banana Split Sunday Challenge No. 12

It's time for 2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday Challenge, and this week's is a good one. The challenge is called Tied Up With Ribbon, and all you have to do is use ribbon on your project. Piece of cake, right? I'm sure we all have this embellishment in our stash. One random participant will be given an assortment of ribbon from (and believe me, 2RB has a LOT of very cute ribbon).

For this challenge I used Jami Bova's Chicken Dumpling stamp set from 2RedBananas. I don't know why, but to me ribbon and baby stuff just seem to go together. I stamped the image on yellow Basic Grey DP and colored it with watercolor pencils and a Inkssentials white pen. All of the other DP is from "Just the Girls" by Lasting Impressions. The mat was made using the Nestabilities Label 1 die. I used some ribbon scraps to make the "flower", and the buttons are all by Junkitz.

I have also included a card I made for Ashton's birthday. I didn't use any DP on this one, just ribbon (makes it perfect for this challenge, doesn't it?) I used my Nestabilities Label 1 die on a folded piece of cardstock to make the card base. Then just covered it with scraps of ribbon and added a monkey image (Stampendous) and sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly).

I also wanted to include a mini baby album I made using my new Zutter Bind-it-All. I love this machine! This project used a lot of ribbon, so it also fits the theme of this week's challenge. All of the DP is by Making Memories.

I love using ribbon. It just seems to finish a project. I hope you join us in this week's challenge. Be sure to go to 2RedBananas' blog for more info and to see the other DT members' samples.
