How awesome that my girls are best friends!

I did the "trifecta" at Design Dollies this week.
The element challenge is "friends".
The color challenge is "olive green, cream, and purple"
And to the left is the sketch.





It felt wonderful to get my scrap on after being off for vacation and I'm super happy with how this layout came out! You can click on it to zoom in and view it bigger but here is a close-up of the ribbon detail. I am entering this in The Scrap Room's challenge #31 which is to have "literal pop" on your page (i.e. big dimension)






Supply list: Tan paper: Bazzil Dot; Patterned paper, ribbon, letter stickers: Basic Grey "Green at Heart"; Journalling card: Fancy Pants; Felt bird and branch: Maya Road; Ink: Tim Holtz "Milled Lavender", Staz-On black; Pearls: Kaiser Craft (purple), Recollections (white); punches used: Martha Stewart butterflies, Fiskar's border (did you see all the pearls on the border?)

I agree, that ribbon banner is so cool! It drew my attention in right away! I love the LO and the minimal embellishments, especially when that banner is so eye catching!
