Happy Friday everyone!
The sentiment ensemble is stamped and embossed with a Verve saying out of the Kind Words set on a red cardstock scrap. I made a ribbon banner with a strip of leftover embossed white cardstock using the Stampin Up Petals a Plenty Textured Die and some more green grosgrain ribbon. I was in the mood to tinker around with a button and some beads and wire to finish off the ensemble.
The key ingredient in starting the layout happens to be the red ribbon tucked under the green grosgrain and the main image. That red ribbon is part of a fabulous grab bag I got at my local fabric store. I think there are over 10 yards of ribbon in all sorts of gorgeous styles and colors. The price of one bag? $0.20 I could not believe how gorgeous some of this ribbon was so I bought three bags. You just can't pass up that great of a deal, right?
Thanks for going down my thrifty lane for a bit there, but now on with my card for today.
