make it monday

I snuck out of bed to whip up a make it monday card for this week :)
this week's challenge is to make a custom copic striped ribbon. easy enough :)

whenever the challenges involve color, i've realized that i always go rainbow, blame it on being part of the lisa frank generation :)

for tonight's card, i went clean and simple, with an acetate card base, so my rainbow ribbon could take center stage.

i added some rainbow-ish mehndi medallions on the inside, and my happy trails sentiment on the front. the cool thing about decorating the ribbon with copics is that the pattern is crisp and visible on the back of the ribbon too, perfect for clear cards!

here's my card opened up a little bit so you can see the layers better :)
