The Stampotique Designers challenge asks for ribbons. I agree, I have a drawer full of ribbon, and I seldom use it! SDC doesn't demand the use of Stampotique stamps, but I do like using a companies stamps for their challenge if I can. I only have three Stampotique stamps, so I chose to use the Give a Dog a Bone -stamp and use ribbon around the dog's neck. When I put together the card, I found I only have white card blanks in this size, which really shows of the fact that the striped card is off white! Looking at the card I realized that I'd used the Rubberdance July colours (vintage white, forgetmenot blue, cinnamon brown). They don't demand the use of their stamps for challenges either, and the card was already done... but I took the Rubberdance Harlequin background and used blue Distress Inks and a spritz of water to enhance the envelope.

and mounted the dogs with low foam tape onto my card.
