Crafty Ribbons Challenge 163 - Anything Goes

Firstly, I would love to welcome my new followers.
Thank you for taking the time to join me.
I hope you enjoy your visit 
and pop in and leave a message, so I know you have been.

What a palaver trying to get a decent photo!!
It has been so dark and gloomy here, I couldn't get an acceptable picture.
I got up early again this morning, (Wednesday) 
as it appeared to be a bit brighter.
It's back to gloomy and dark again now!!
Is it really Summer?!!!

I am having the lights on during the day in my craft room.
I took some with the lights on and it just bounced off the ribbon
 and distorted the images!
This picture is the best I could get, but not as good as in real life.

The theme for this weeks 
is easy peasy:
Anything Goes!!

There is as always, a great prize for the winner.

So get those cards, projects, or whatever you would like to do,
onto the challenge page HERE.

This ribbon is amazing and the detail is brilliant.
How they got such clear images on Gross Grain Ribbon
is beyond me!!

It's called Retro Car Ribbon and available HERE.

We saw cars like this when we went to Florida. 
My Daughter and family are going there today, to the Tampa area.
As she is the Production Manager of TUI (Thomson Holidays) 
 Specialist brochures, she gets a few perks!


This is actually an easel card! Can't you see that?!!!!Lol!

I cut the ribbon into sections and attached them to pieces of white card.
I then backed them with a piece of black card.
The top right and bottom left cars are actually 3D and the other 2 laid flat.

So get those entries in to have chance of winning.

This is the last challenge for the 'Buttons'  DT for a few weeks.
So pop over to the blog for more super inspiration from my talented Teamies.

There is one more challenge from the  Bows Team on 11th August.
We then have a Summer break.

The Buttons team will be back on the 1st September,
with the theme of Anything Goes.

Thank you for you support.

Big hugs,

Carol xxxx
