The Last of my Ribbon Challenges for The Stamp Spot!

Phew - I made it to the end of the month and managed to use all the ribbon and lace Marcia sent me for her Stamp Spot DT challenge. I've used it in a very traditional way - as a simple embellishment. I didn't have enough to tie a bow - but a knot can often be just as effective I think!

The DP is from Basic Grey - from another of their paper pads - this one is Figgy - an older Christmas one! I LOVE these paper pads because the pattern is downsized from the 12x12 papers to fit the 6x6 - so they are a perfect scale for cards! Most of the DP's I use are from paper pads so I'm glad Marcia stocks them at The Stamp Spot Store! And aren't stripes fun!!!! You can change the whole look of a card by the way you orientate the stripe!!!

This Greeting Farm image is one of the new ones Marcia will have in stock soon - isn't she cute!?! I had started colouring her for the Anya Ink challenge - blue, grey and cream/white - but the lace dictated a browner tone - so I changed along the way!

I've use this week's fabulous Mojo Monday sketch for the layout.

And don't forget to check in at The Stamp Spot blog to see what wonders the other gals come up with!!!
