Carrot Banner Wreath

It's challenge time again at May Arts Ribbon!
As the banner says...they give you the ribbon...you create.
You must be one of the first 20 people to sign up, so go --here-- for more info.

 Here is a look at the Inspiration Board and Retro Themed Ribbons:
Seriously yummy, right?
For my take on the challenge, I was able to use all but the bottom right green
ribbon in my design.  I came up with this cheerful Spring Banner that now
graces one of my larger grapevine wreaths:

To begin, I started with six sheets of scalloped rectangle chipboard by Maya Road.


 I cut each piece down into a triangular shape as shown above.  
Next, I painted the very top with a lime green acrylic paint.

I used the orange scallop grosgrain ribbon as the base of the carrot.  After cutting
the desired lengths for each chipboard piece, I ran the ribbon through a 3" Xyron Sticker Maker.
Just apply the strips of ribbon to the triangle and wrap the excess around to the back.


 Where the grosgrain ribbons met, I accented those areas with the yellow loop trim.

 I accented the top of each carrot with pink pom trim and the new gorgeous
sequined elastic trim.  I tied all of the panels together with the turquoise sheer
ribbon and then attached it to the wreath with a heavy gauged wire.

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
