Mo's Challenge #154

Ribbons and Bows

Another easy challenge for this week! I use ribbons and/or bows on almost all the cards I make! 

This card uses Mo's cute "Housework Fairy." Don't we all wish we had one?!
 I do have a cleaning lady that comes in once a week, which is almost as good!

The inspiration for this card came from a commercial greeting card 
that a co-worker gave me for my birthday. 
Although I don't drink, I thought the sentiment was funny, 
so I used a variation of it for this card.

The inside says, "You can start by cleaning out the liquor cabinet! Happy Birthday!"

Images: "Housework Fairy" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment

Tools: Copics, Spica pen, SU! Slot punch, MS branch punch

Papers: SU! CS, Neenah white, MME "Lost & Found"DP

Embellishments: Satin ribbon, Pearl brad, Flowers from WOC

So, get out your pretty ribbons and make a card or project using one
 of Mo's great images and enter Mo's Challenge!
 You could win a $5.00 gift certificate to her store!

Glad to have you stop by!
