Vacation Project #4 - Hambo Hoedown #43

This week's Hambo Hoedown was to use something soft on your project.  I made it (barely) by using some wide twill striped ribbon.  See it - yeah over there on the far left side, next the notebook paper punch ... yep that's ribbon.  Its soft and it counts.  I wanted to put a bow or a knot there too, but due multiple attempts at this card, I didn't have enough left to do that.

Here is the whole card.  I really struggled with this one today and I'm not sure why.  I did learn something new though.  If you accidentally die cut paper that has adhesive all over the back, you can clean your steel dies with rubbing alcohol.  It will eventually get the adhesive residue off  *cough don't ask cough*

I used the new Computer digi for the main image and shrunk down my balloon penguin to fit in the computer screen.  I printed the sentiment using Courier font and die cut with the Half and Half die from PTI.

Thanks for stopping!
