It's that time again - time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. Check out this fun sketch Karen created for us to play with this week:
I pulled out some of my neglected PTI goodies to create my sample this time:
Fun, huh? I love the look of those messy ruffled ribbons that are popping up everywhere. But I have to ask you guys - do any of you have trouble with the ribbon not staying adhered to the card when you do this technique? Because after about a day, my ribbons that I do like this slowly start peeling off the adhesive so I'll find the card with the ribbon all flat and lifeless, no longer adhered in cute little ruffle. And I'm using a nice brand-new roll of Scor-Tape. What's up with that? Does anyone else have that problem or is it just me? I'm wondering if it's just the humidity here in Hawaii - or more accurately the humidity combined with the fact that we *always* have our windows open and don't run A/C or anything, because I mean there are way more humid places than Maui (like Florida?) - but the humidity we do have here IS in my house too since our windows are always open and that ocean breeze is constantly finding it's way inside. But it's not like a swamp or anything out here. So I'm frustrated. I love how that ribbon looks, but the card is kinda worthless now. And this isn't the first time that's happened. :-( Oh well.
OK, enough whining from me. Be sure to check out the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with the sketch.
