Circles, Squares, Ribbon & Sentiment Mini Tutorial

A while back I discovered a blog called 365 Cards. Each day they post a challenge and ask people to participate. It really is a great way to get your creative thoughts going. I had a bit of insomnia this morning, so decided to take the challenge. They did ask for a 5 x 5 card. Since I didn't have a 5 x 5 envelope to match, I did change the card size. The challenge was to use 3 circles, 2 squares, ribbon and sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Products Used:
Taken With Teal Classic Ink: item #103257
Whisper White Card Stock, item #100730
Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, item #109030 (2 pieces 4" each)

Well Scripted, item #117072 - wood mount OR item #118601 - clear mount (only available until April 30, 2010.

Directions:
1. Create your card base.
2. Punch out 3 circles and 2 squares
3. Attach circles using SNAIL adhesive.
4. Tie ribbons on the two squares.
5. Using Dimensionals, attach squares to the card
6. Stamp sentiment using Taken With Teal
7. Sign the back of your card

Wasn't that quick and easy. Hope you will try this challenge too.
