DCRU Challenge 14

This week the challenge on the Die Cuts R Us Design Team blog was to "Nest Something". The shapes that the ladies there worked with were really nice looking. I couldn't find something like that in the stores I have close at hand, so, I had to make up shapes myself. It's very simple, and I jumped on the bandwagon of several other crafters and went with a neutral scheme for this card.



I just used some textured card stock I've had laying around forever, I don't even know what brand it is since the cover ripped off ages ago. Both stamps are Inkadinkado. And this time instead of attaching ribbon with something sticky I just used a couple of brads to secure the ends in place.

I think it turned out pretty good. What do you think?:)

Laura, The color scheme is classic...great choice. Like how you did your nesting. Brads and eyelets are fantastic ways to attach ribbons. Great job!

Smiles!
