IHP BIG BOW Challenge and a chance to WIN!

Today the i {heart} papers Design Team has been challenged to use wide ribbon on our project. Using wide ribbon can be a challenge, especially on a small sized card. That's why I went with a 5-1/4" X 5-1/4" square project today.

Using some yummy Lemonade paper from Basic Grey and my anniversary set from PTI, I fashioned a "thank you" card that just screamed for some of this delicious wide silk ribbon from May Arts. I had a little fun by adding a tiny crown to the top of the head of the bird, taking this card from elegant to whimsical. I couldn't resist using some Zva crystals to my bow to bling it up a bit. I find it really difficult not to use a little bling on most of my projects...lol

Now for a little fun...how would you like to win a selection of some of this awesome wide satin ribbon from i {heart} papers? An assortment can be yours if you want to play along. Here are the details:
  • Use any kind of wide ribbon on an original project
  • Share this challenge/contest on your blog or in your gallery posting
  • upload to SCS with keyword ihp0709
  • receive extra *points* for using ihp stamps/products
You have until next Tuesday, August 4th to complete your project. I hope you'll play along so that perhaps you can enjoy some of this luxuriously elegant wide ribbon too!
