2 Sketches 4 You #50

Okay so yesterday I showed you some paper I never use but love. Today's card is all about the paper I love but can't stop using. I really need more Webster Pages product and ribbon! I thought I'd try out Laura's sketch:

Here's what I came up with:

What's really strange about this card is that I didn't use one stamp. Do you see that scallop on the edge? I actually just used my 1.5" circle punch to make that. Just pinch out some circles and tape them down. I used the stripe behind my ribbon to cover up most of he circles. I also didn't adhere the side you see. I kind of curled them up just to give them a little something extra.

Patterned Paper: Love Yourself; Dreamland (Webster's Pages)
Hat Pin: Cream Stick (Jenni Bowlin)
Cardstock: Ivory (Gina K)
Ribbon: Neptune Cabbage Roses Ribbon (MemrieMare)
Die Cut: Labels 4 (Spellbinders)
Punch: 1.5" Circle (Shape Makers)
