The Stamp Spot Ribbon Challenge Continues...

Another Wednesday so another DT card for The Stamp Spot from me - and the ribbon and embellishment challenge continues!!! Well I'm almost out of ribbon so I figured this little piece would have to go a looong way on my card! It's become just a fun little embelishment now but it did help to dictate the whole colour scheme of my card - LOL.  I found this fabulous DP in the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper pad I got from The Stamp Spot a while ago. The rich burgundys and pinks look fabulous with the pale blue - and the blue "berries" on the DP helped tie it all together too. I've used my SU Tres Chic background stamp to liven up the blue CS.

My layout is based on this week's Mojo Monday sketch but as I haven't fulfilled all the elements I won't enter it there - but it was a fabulous source of inspiration when I was feeling lost!

The flowers are layered Kaiser flowers with pale blue Kaiser pearl centres. These are both available from The Stamp Spot Store. Be aware that The Big Moving Sale is almost over, it ends this Friday ... so if you haven't grabbed your bargain yet, you need to do so pretty quickly!

Also - the store is going to be closed for a fortnight from the 20th February. You will still be able to place orders, but they won't be invoiced, packaged or sent until after the start of March. Most of the product will be in transit for the move.

So pop past The Stamp Spot Store and get your hands on those things you've been eyeing off for a while! And then get ready for all the new stuff Marcia will be unpacking once the move is complete!

I must admit Debbie that this card evoked an immediate flashback for me...to my high school days!!! My winter school uniform was maroon and blue and the summer one was PINK (now u know why I don't do the colour alot...LOL!!) It freaked me a bit. After a stabilising coffee...I looked at it again and it is a beautiful card and actually quite elegane. The burgandy gives it a real depth and the blue balances it out. Ur right abt the ribbon how it ties it all in. Well done. Ur nearly thru ur ribbon therapy now huh?? The DP is FAB and I am lovin the flowers too. Well done darl. ooxx

Great color combo and that designer paper is lovely. Image is so cute and colored to match everything else. I think it was the ribbon that "tied" everything together, hee hee!
