Lily Pad Cards Ribbon Challenge

Hello all! Here is my card for this week's challenge over at Lily Pad Cards.

This week's sponsor is May Arts and the challenge is to use ribbons on your cards. Easy peasy, right?

I used the yummy 1.5" Silk Ribbon in pink for my card. You may have noticed that I am in love with their silk ribbon lately since I use them on almost every card. =) I also used a little piece of pink paper Raffia to tie the little tag to the bow.

The image I used is Poppy Fairy from A Day For Daisies. It's printed on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. It's then colored with Copic markers and matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Labels 18 die. The patterned paper is from the Lime Twist Life Of The Party collection by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have. Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards that the other Dream Team members came up with over at Lily Pad Cards. They are amazing!

Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by![BirdIconTiny.png]
