I love using ribbons but I think I've been neglecting my ribbon collection lately, how sad is that?

I did break out some more ribbon for this card though:

# Really Reasonable Ribbon ~ Challenge #8 ~ Inspiration picture
# Secret Crafter ~ Challenge #101 ~ Anything Goes

Stamp and Create PRIZEA little while back, I received some delicious blog candy from Lacey at Stamp and Create.

I've been saving the gorgeous celery May Arts ribbon for just the right project, and I used some of it for the first time on this layout:

The layout is my entry in the Home Economics 101 class at My Scrapbook Nook. The criteria was to use fabric and/or ribbon, and to use stitching. The muslin flowers were trickier to make than I thought they'd be, but in the end they were my favourite part.

I didn't have an iron handy, so my ribbon is a little bit creased *tiny frown* but by the time it goes into an album it won't really matter. (More about my "iron story" in a future blog post.)

Aaaa-a-a-a-a-nd, for some deliberately crinkled ribbon...

I was so thrilled to win some wrinkled ribbon bundles from Leeanne at Artful Delight.  The ribbons come from  Prairie Bird Boutique and are just so beautiful!  They arrived today, complete with some colourful postage stamps on the envelope, and Patsy's gorgeous handwriting.

I can't wait to try the ribbon on some layouts and cards.

Thank you so much xx
