52 Card Challenge - Week 31 Ribbon Banners

This week on UK Scrappers, the 52 Card Challenge hosted by Nat invited us to use ribbon banners for the Week 31 challenge. 

Impossible to believe we are that far into the year already, but so we are.  I went  to the Bellaboo crop on Tuesday night, which is run by Kate.  I was really unprepared and shot a few card making supplies in at the last minute.

When I found out her birthday was approaching, I put together this card for her.  The Bellaboo blog is also running a challenge for July called "Flower Show".  So  I also entered this card for that challenge. 

I put in my blue scraps bag and a few colours of ink, some Stampin' Up paper from last year. 
Kate's challenge was to use some supplies from the Bellaboo shop, so I bought some coordinating double sided papers from Kaisercraft - the "Miss Nellie" range. 

My ribbon banner die is by Stampin' Up!

One of the best things about going to a crop is sharing other people's supplies, which they are happy to do.  I happened to have the Glossy Accents and twine in my Cropper Hopper.  The journalling stamp is "Curly Cute!" by Stampin' Up - a beautiful set.

Another Kate brought along her dies and a lovely collection of embossing flowers, so I used the smallest Tim Holtz distressed flower and other flower dies and middles to embellish. I wouldn't have normally used so many patterned papers together, but I did like the result.
