WHAT'S THE WORD, BIRD?


This is my submission for

The challenge was to make a project with the theme VINTAGE & RIBBON, but it was okay to just use RIBBON if you wanted.  Good thing, because although I love looking at all the vintage projects you ladies make, I don't have a bit of vintage anything.  So I went with just using ribbon.

Now I know there is a big space on this card just waiting to be used.... but what's a girl to do?  I decided to just leave it there.  Call it an object of conversation.... like that coffee table book in your living room... something to chat about.

I cut out a nest and put adhesive over the top of the whole thing.  Then I cut ribbon strips and stuck them down on the nest.  Hopefully it looks like the nest is made of ribbons.  Hopefully.  :)
