Garden Window




I was in the mood to play with some ribbon today. I just love this ruffly curtain-like ribbon from May Arts. Tami suggested that we carry it, and I have since had SO much fun using it! It's so classic and girly and frilly. :) I think in this case, the ribbon makes it look like you are looking out through your kitchen window at the garden.

The patterned paper is October Afternoon. It's Depot Park from the Hometown collection. The paper is double-sided, and I used both sides on this little card. The ric rac was created using my PTI ric rac die and black felt. The card base was Ripe Avocado, and I rounded some of my corner edges...

I made two cards and tried two different additions to them, keeping the base the same. The first card features a Jillibean Soup Cool Beans (HUGE...MONDO) button with an SU flowery brad piece on top. A Deep Yellow Rhinestone is in the center to cover a whole. Haha.

The second version features another button from the Cool Beans package layered on top of a black Prima flower.
