It's All About the Ribbon



I made a card tonight and designed it around this ribbon!  I know, how funny!  BUT...I am LOVING all the striped ribbon I have been seeing on cards lately and today after being locked in the house almost all week long with sick kids, I finally had a few hours on my own this afternoon!!  So, my first stop was to search for striped ribbon!

I was disappointed when I could only find the ribbon I wanted in 1 1/2 inch width but I am thrilled with how it looks on this card.  (Hey!  It's not the ribbons fault that I glued my layer on crooked! LOL!!)



Isn't it pretty?  I love using stamps to make my own background!  This background is made with a stamp from PTI's "Turning a New Leaf" set and Belle Rose Palette ink on a soft pink Bazzill cardstock.  I love the look it made!

Here's another view:



Isn't that ribbon soooo pretty!?  I LOVE it!!  I am going to have to go back to Hobby Lobby and buy it in some other colors too!  But, since I use brown all the time, I figured that that was the color to start with!

Hope you enjoyed this card!  Thanks for coming by!  I'd love to hear what you think!
