Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Cool Blue

This week's Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style features ribbons in crisp, icy, COOL blue! 




Kaisercraft's "Sweet Nothings" decorator paper is so very lovely~~ look for a future mini album soon to come! This card is purposefully very simple...I just didn't want to cover up the pretty print!


All that was needed to dress up this design was a May Art's Silk Bow tied with a Bow Easy, layered over May Art's 5/8" Crochet Lace threaded through with a May Art's narrow Silk piece of ribbon. Last pretty:  Prima "Vintage Tiny Treasures XO Hearts" added for a sweet touch of bling. The heart shaped locket here actually opens!

Beautiful paper, a bit of silk and lace, and there you have it! All supplies are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.




As always, this is a Mystery Blog Candy hop, meaning the winner will be drawn from comments on one of today's participating blogs, so leaving a comment on each blog will greatly increase your chances of winning, but only one comment per blog, please.

Hi Deb~

I'm with you...I wouldn't want to cover up that beautiful Vintage style paper either! Although you chose some very beautiful embellishments to cover just a teeny bit of this card! Beautiful!
