I have a Confession...


Yep you read it right. I have a confession to make. Are you ready? Ya sure?

Ok. Whew. Here goes:

I'm addicted to wide grosgrain ribbon.

Ha...you thought it was going to be something serious, didn't you?? lol
Really I love this wide ribbon, and I especially like the way it looks when I (finally!) get it tied right...so cute!

Anyway, I used Jen's sketch from last Saturday, turned on its side. And without the little circle-ma-bob. Yikes! I just realized I forgot that.

This is a really simple card. I stamped the flourish from Baroque Motifs in Celery ink on Papertrey White cardstock, and then stamped the small flowers in Guava and Soft Sky ink randomly. In the center I stamped the greeting in Versafine Onyx Black, and then I rounded 2 opposite corners. The card base is Papertrey White, and I used my paper piercer and mat pack to pierce along the bottom edge. Added some layers, bling, and ribbon, and there you have it!

I am about to be seriously busy over the next couple weeks...but thank goodness I am taking Friday and Monday off from work and will be out of town for a little R&R with DH and the boys. Hope everyone is doing well...have a great day!!
