Challenge: ColourQ #100 and Colour Create 78

Ah September, it's a time for newness. This will be the first September in a long time that I'm not at school. I'm a little sad, but also excited as I look forward to a year with my precious little girl!

It is the 100th challenge at ColourQ this week. To celebrate we get to use a sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping (fall-to layout #155)  along with our favourite past challege colour combination. I have been wanting to start my Christmas cards and have been looking for an excuse to breakout my new Stampin' Up! striped grosgrain ribbon! The Challenge over at Colour Create this week is to use Kraft, Red, and White/Cream so I just had to combine these two challenges! I used a jumbo brad to create the center of the bow by wrapping a scrap piece of ribbon around it and adhering it with glue dots. I had lots of fun playing with my whisper white craft ink as well. It's not as messy as I thought it would be :)
