Embrace Favorites!

Yesterday I got the school valentines all completed, and made FOUR other cards besides! YEAY! I'm going to spread them out tho so you're not overwhelmed today! LOL!

Now here is a card I am very happy with. The OCC Challenge was to make a card around your favorite accessory. I LOVE this ribbon. I loved it as soon as I saw it! But, I got it and its so wide and thick I hardly know what to do with it. I cannot tie bows (ever seen one on my blog??) and its so big for knots... what to do, what to do...?? But this sketch of Julee's (Mojo #73) lent itself quite well to this particular ribbon! Yeay! Two in one! I just love how the soft shade of the ribbon looks with the rich Eggplant!

Supplies: Stamps: Embrace Life

Ink: Black, So Saffron, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, white card stocks Accessories: So Saffron Poly-twill ribbon, Blender Pen, Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware (retired)
