SUOC41 - Is it Spring or is it Autumn?

Happy first full day of Spring! The SUO challenge this week is to make a Spring-y card, but if you live in the Southern Hemisphere, an Autumn-y card will do!  I think the freaky weather we've been having here in the States means you could make just about ANY seasonal card, and it would be right. Crazy stuff, huh?

This was the other card I made while Jennifer was visiting. I tell ya, I felt so inadequate when she was finishing her third card, and I was just barely getting started on my second! Sometimes (most of the time) it takes me a while to figure it all out. :-D  This was the sketch Jennifer and I used for this week's challenge:
I love how unique our two cards turned out!
Did you know you can curl the SAB ribbon? That's right...just like you would gift wrap ribbon! Pull it between your thumb and a pair of scissors several times until you get the amount of curl you want.  Since there was a lot going on with the flowers on this card, I opted for a few curls of ribbon, rather than The Bow.

  4. What great cards! I did not know about curling ribbon. Does it only work for the organdy or will satin curl too? Oh, now I have to go try this!

  5. Wow Cindy! I love this one too.
