2 Sketches 4 You #50

Today's card is all about the ribbon. I finally cut myself a yard of the celery and white stripe ribbon. I love it!  Once I had the ribbon, I thought it would work great for Kazan's sketch this week.
And don't you love those ferns in the background? That's my friend Dawn's new set, and I used some Hero Arts White Chalk ink. I got a lot of comments about the ink so I may do a quick video about that ink.
Have a fabulous Wednesday!

Oh how pretty is this!?! I love the color combo and the fact that you doubled up on the ribbon - I never would have thought to do that.

That ribbon is G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S! I love how it takes the centre stage of your super-sweet card!
Can't wait to tie some bows myself with this beauty!

The green against the blue is a perfect combination to showcase that ribbon, along with the pin. Lovely details, lovely card.
