Ribbon patterned paper



Hi Everyone! I'm back from my long weekend of visiting family, and wanted to pop in and post this card I made for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge this week to use ribbon in a "different" way. Ribbon with a Twist is the actual challenge this week, but it just means not using it in the same old tie-a-bow way!

I was so excited to use up some of my ribbon scraps for this challenge! Originally I tried to create a multi-petaled flower with them but it kept falling apart so I just decided to glue them down as if they were PP instead. 

Maybe some of you will have better luck and give the flower thing a try!

Sentiment stamps by Hampton Art Stamps. These are older wood-mounted stamps so they turned out a bit crooked after I stamped them, but that's the beauty of wood-mounted stamps, right? *snort*

Join us this week and show us how YOU use ribbon in a different way!
