Money Saving Monday and 365 Cards Day #114

First I would like to thank Pam at 365 cards and Cosmo Cricket! I was chosen as the random winner of last week's contest!! I am really excited to play with a new PATTERNED PAPER stack!!! I love patterned paper!! YAY!

Today I combined my money saving tip with my card for 365 cards. Today's tip is to
MAKE YOUR OWN CHIPBOARD
I made mine with my Cuttle bug. First I used my ribbon Cuttlebug die and cut 6 pink ribbons. Then I used my Swiss Dots folder and embossed one pink ribbon. I ran all but one through my "little X" sticker maker. I then placed one on top of the one that wasn't sticky. I repeated this with each piece, ending with the one that was embossed.
The challenge on 365 cards was to use lavendar as the main color. Here is my creation:
