Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Weddings

Just want to quickly apologize for being off the grid for these past weeks...I'm still in the States visiting with family, but will be travelling back to Tajikistan soon...thanks so much for your patience on my lack of posts!

Welcome to this weeks Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style! We're focusing on weddings this week...hope you can find some inspiration for all of those upcoming special events! You can find the Weddings category at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store HERE.

Also, apologies for the poor photo...the card is so much prettier IRL!




My card is a monochromatic gray design using Lily Bee "Buttercup" designer paper. Gray is such a popular color as of late, one of my favorite neutrals!

Prima Laraine "Black Tie" Roses add a floral touch, accented with a Prima "Iced" Petal Pin.

A May Art's 5/8" "Solid Plaid" ribbon bow and border mix up the prints a bit; JustRite's "Summer Words" Mr. & Mrs., layered with Spellbinder Petite Ovals and Shapeabilities Fancy Tags Two, create the sentiment panel.

All supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.


As always, this is a Mystery Blog Candy hop (shown above), 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. The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, May 22nd and will be posted on Sharon's blog on Wednesday or thereafter.
