Thoughts for the Day

I had a thought yesterday!


It actually began when I was blurfing. Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings is one of my Check This Out blogs.... I have to see what creativity is going on there. Well, check this out! I just loved Susan's ruffled ribbon, and her tutorial looked easy enough, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Here's my first attempt at Ruffled Ribbon:

It won't be my last!

This was so much fun - and easy! I will definitely be ruffling ribbon again!

By the way, in case you haven't noticed, Stampin' UP! Cherry Cobbler is quickly becoming one of my MOST favorite colors!

Sentiment: Stampin' UP! Whimsical Words
Ink: Versafine Black
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Black, Cherry Cobbler, Handsome Hunger, and Metallic Gold
Embellishments: Cuttlebug Embossing Plate (Swiss Dots), WFR fabric ribbon, and two black brads

Great card Jeanette, and the ruffles came out really good! You'd never know it was your first attempt!! Now, for your second attempt, why don't you grab some Aloha themed colors and join our current Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge!! :)
