Just a Little Hello from Cheryl Alger


It's time for new releases from Squigglefly Designs!  I made a card using a digi image from Squigglefly artist Cheryl Alger called "Just a Little Hello".  Isn't she the cutest thing??  And just in time for this week's challenge, which is to use ribbon in any way other than a bow!
I used my bit of ribbon in two places, one being a sort of border on the bottom of my card, but the best is used to make a banner.  I found the tutorial for this (she uses construction paper) at Lily's Blog: 
I colored my image using a mix of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers and framed it onto red cardstock.  The background patterned paper is from paper studio and has the loveliest butterflies on it.
I have to apologize for her bad hair day.  In the middle of coloring it, my marker ran out of ink and I had to rub every last drop onto her scalp to finish it!!  I guess I get no tip from her!! LOL
If you like "Just a Little Hello", you will love all the new March releases that Squigglefly has out.  Want more incentive?  Throughout the month of March you can save 15% by using the code spring15 at Squigglefly.

What a clever and creative way you used your ribbon Pat! I've had that happen to me with my marker going dry before I was finished coloring - I usually just color over it with a darker color.
