The Next Level Challenge 2

Hi everyone, and a happy Monday to you all.

Issue two of The Next Level has now been released. There's a brand new ribbon border challenge so if you love all things ribbon, why not get on over there and give it a go. There's lots of other information and tips too, including using stitching on your creations, and hints and tips on using digital papers and downloading fonts, including some freebies, so it's well worth a visit.
Now as I am a current Guest Designer I'd better show you my card featuring the ribbon border:
I had real fun making this card, and as I've never used ribbon in this way before, it's given me another dimension for my cardmaking.

I've used Bo Bunny paper for the mat around which I've threaded my ribbon framing the Gorjuss Girl image. The green spotted paper is from Daisy Bucket designs, (the reverse side of a christmas one last year). The pale pink pearlised paper is from a 6x6 pad from Craftwork Cards. Pearlised papers look great embossed, as they pick up the light and shimmer beautifully. I edged it with my Martha Stewart punch and added tiny crystals to catch the light.

I punched out the butterflies with my Martha Stewart punch, and folded their wings up to make them stand out. I adhered them with silicone glue.

The flower is from Prima's Hydrangea collection. Two sizes were fastened together with a sparkly gem from Papermania, and I added a flower charm from The Hobby House.

I glittered some scrolls punched out with my EK Sussess punch, I just love these for adding that extrea little touch. And as you can see the inside followed the same theme.

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with, so out with the ribbon and get busy, busy, busy....

Thanks for looking, and happy crafting.
