CAS-ual Friday (party w/ ribbon)

Let's have a party! After all, it IS Friday! 
And isn't Mardi Gras this coming Tuesday? 
Oooh I'm so excited! I love festive occasions like that as an excuse to throw a party!

These invites are simple to make but really pack a punch because of the super-duper fun ribbon. And because this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge is to make a party themed card using ribbon I think it's only fitting that a party is in order!

I used some bright, festive ribbon from MAY ARTS to create these simple bows and adhered them to my card front to look like a gift. 
How fun would it be to receive one of these in the mail?!

May Arts happens to be our sponsor this week and each of the DT members received an amazing assortment of ribbons to play with. Our sponsor was very generous and we are so pleased to showcase their products for them!

Create your best party card using ribbon and pop over to CAS-ual Fridays to link it up for a chance to win your very own bundle of goodness from May Arts!

We can't wait to see what you come up with. Let the festivities begin!
