Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Stripes

Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Stripes...I love May Art's stripe ribbons...there are a variety of sizes, stripe widths and colors at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.




Products used today: Bo Bunny "Gabrielle" paper; Webster's Pages "Cameo Silhouettes"; May Arts "Crochet Lace," and 3/8" "Grosgrain Stripe" ribbons.

EDITED TO ADD: The Webster's Pages "Cameo Silhouettes" that I used are from the variety pack; the "Mother and Child" is still available as part of the variety pack.

If you would like to see a mini tutorial on making the lace flower beneath the cameo, check it out here.

All products used today are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Oh Deb~ I can't think of an adjective with enough excitement over this card! It is so elegant...and I love the color of ribbon you chose, and that beautiful lace with that gorgeous cameo is incredible...I love this whole card...the music paper is a beautiful background. I just love this look. If you find the adjective I was looking for...it isn't stunning, or exceptional...it was more than that...let me know if you find the word!

He IS Able!
