Silk Ribbon Cards...and RIBBON GIVEAWAY! :)




GIVEAWAY IS OVER... CONGRATS TO MICHELLE (Michelle (mla1111) )!!

I couldn't WAIT to play with this new silk ribbon we got in from May Arts! It's so soft and luxurious! The great thing about it is that it looks GORGEOUS on cards. The bad thing is that I want to HOARD it and save it all for myself! You know, to look at and pet and stroke and... You know how it goes. ;)

I used the Lemonade papers from Basic Grey on a Mud Pie base (on clearance!) to create these almost identical cards. The glittery flower cardstock elements are actually from the Lemonade Do Me a Favor Kits! Yep! Isn't that cool? In addition to the fabulous treat containers you get in the kit (see HERE for favor sample!), you get tons of extra glittery tags and elements, all in coordinating colors from the Lemonade Line. I have loved my kit; it's a great deal! I tied my Ivory Silk Ribbon around the card and tied a pretty bow, then adhered the final cardstock flower onto the center of the bow. Cute, right? :)

So... You want a yard of this same fabulous Ivory Silk Ribbon that I used on my above cards? Leave a comment on this post, and I'll choose a winner Monday night after 8:00! Good luck, and have a blessed Sunday! :)
