Bright and Fuzzy


I think this is now the third time I've paper pieced a Purple Onion Designs image for a CAS-ual Fridays challenge. I really need to change it up a bit but when I made this card on Monday I was in need of bright cheeriness and this card did it for me!  The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is to use ribbon.  That is something you rarely see on my cards despite the large quantities of it that can be found in the Craft Cave...  However, I pulled out this fun red fibre to add to the plant pot.  I love the fuzziness of it!  And since I needed bright cheeriness I knew that the challenge at Jay Gee's Nook was perfect as the inspiration photos are full of rainbow goodness.

I am glad you didn't go 'all out' with the ribbon. It wouldn't be a Jen card, otherwise! Me ... on the other hand ... rarely makes a card without ribbon! :) Hugs xxx

I love how you tied the ribbon around the pot. So, so sweet Jen!

Definitely a perfect pick-me-up card! What, I'm not the only one with way more ribbon than I would ever need? (And yet, never quite the right one when I do need it?) :D

Oh how much I loved Lime Rickey...I think I used every teeny scrap of that pad!
I love that fuzzy fibre, and how the paper piecing just takes centre stage!
