Smoochy ribbons

I made a little card today which fits a couple of challenge this weekend - firstly Paper Smooches Sparks which is Anything Goes and Less is More which is Recycling.

I was inspired to make this card by the song "tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree" which came on the radio yesterday.  The yellow ribbon was salvaged from a box of chocolates so is my recycled item for the LIM theme this week.  The tree is from Paper Smooches Summer Groves and I coloured it with copics in a very basic pointillism style and fussy it cut it before tying my ribbon and foam mounting it.  The sentiment is also from Paper Smooches from the ever so useful Sentiment Sampler set.   I stood the little blue bird on the O so he's looking out for the person on the bus in the song.....


  1. Fabby card Tara! I love the idea of the little bird on lookout! :)
