Celebrate Simply

One of the blogs I check out regularly is This n' That. (Okay, okay, there are quite a few blogs I look at every day or two.) A lot of Gretchen's cards are clean and simple but have that added touch of ribbon. And I can't do without ribbon on a card!! I cased THIS card of hers.

I made two. The first card shown is actually the second card I made. I really like how it turned out with using shades of brown and I LOVE the polka dotted ribbon. I can't stand wearing polka dots, but I love looking at them. Go figure.

I added small making memories flowers to this card. I felt I needed to add them to the "blank" spaces on the card.

Supplies on both cards:

Stamps: Celebrate Everything
Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Kraft
Ink: Brown Stazon, Black Stazon
Accessories: 7/8" Brown Polka Dot Ribbon (Michaels), 1" Blue Satin Ribbon, Paper Flowers (makingmemories), Silver Brads (makingmemories), 1/16" Hand Held Punch, Stampamajig

4.25 x 5.5 card

Thanks for stopping by.
