{Ribbon Carousel Sketch Challenge #48 and a YNS New Release Sneak Peak}



   


Hello friends! Today I am thrilled to be playing along with the Design Team for this weeks sketch challenge at The Ribbon Carousel! We were given some pretty pretty ribbon to play with from the April Kit of the Month  and I chose the satin striped ribbon for my card.

     Today I am also showcasing a brand new metal die set from Your Next Stamp that was created for the rubber cling stamp set "Cheers". I colored my "beverage" using copic markers. The super cute citrus embossing folder is by Provo Craft. The patterned paper is by K and Company. Doesn't that ribbon look fabulous?!  To give my card a touch of distressing I went over the raised embossing with a sanding block. I added a few drops of glassy glaze on the ice cubes, and I finished off the card by adding a pinwheel accent from American Crafts.

      Since YNS is sponsoring The Ribbon Carousel Challenge this week there is a fabulous prize up for grabs!

       Check out this cutie:


Not only is there a great prize this week but YNS is also offering a 10% off discount code for everyone to use:
