I think my mojo has officially left the building. I *kinda* like this card, but feel like it needs something else, and can't figure out what. *sigh*
So this finishes the last of the DTGD08 challenges, Joan Ervin's silhouette challenge, and is combined with this week's Color Challenge (CC177) from Emily Giovanni (aka emilymomto3boys) - Groovy Guava, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White.
I cut two ovals using my Coluzzle, and then put a scallop around the outer oval using my corner rounder punch. The scallops didn't meet, however, so I had to figure out a way to cover up the gap...hence the ribbon placement. So, I knew I needed the ribbon to go *over* the scalloped oval and *under* the guava oval, and *still* glued the two together, without any ribbon. grrrr.... So, I cut slits along the guava oval's edge for the ribbon to be fed through, and cut a slit at the card's fold for it to go around the front panel (because I also neglected to cut/score my paper for a 'typical' card). Yeah, seriously struggled with this one!
So, what do you think? Any ideas on what to add? Hope you all are having a great day!
