Striped Ribbon Card

This card is for Nina Dee's I {Heart} Ribbon Challenge #2 and the challenge was to use Striped ribbon. I used American Crafts Orange 7/8" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and I really liked how the thick ribbon makes big loops in bows. I used my new itty bitty bits stamp and punch set from Stampin' Up!, and I really like the cute "X"s the flowers made :) The sentiment is a mix of a Hero Arts set "Special Note of Thanks", Inkadinkado's Heartful of Love, and  Lawn Fawn's Cozy Christmas.

Ribbon Flower Challenge

This card is for I {Heart} Ribbon Challenge #1! that Nina Dee is organizing on her blog. This time the challenge was to create a ribbon flower--so I made my first one ever using retired Stampin' Up Brocade Blue 5/8"grosgrain ribbon following Nina's tutorial. Love how it turned out, and so easy too! The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set called Thinking of You Messages and I made the hill from scraps of ribbon and paper in my stash :) I had lots of fun and can't wait to play again!
