Ribbon Carousel Hops with There She Goes

The Ribbon Carousel DT and I are thrilled to be teaming up today for a blog hop with the designers from There She Goes Clear Stamps!  If you haven't checked out their stamps, go ahead and do it!  I was fortunate enough to receive this very versatile set called Everyday Greetings from Jessica, owner of TSG. I'm able to mix and match a variety of the sentiments, like on this one:



To make this card, I started out with some rich looking Reflections paper from Prima. I just received the Ribbon Carousel's May Ribbon Kit and this gorgeous 1.5" Antique Gold Silky Crushed ribbon was included...and it just so happens that it matches the Prima paper beautifully! As I posted yesterday, the Club Kit is such a great idea because you get ribbon that you may have not otherwise chosen but in my case....I'm sure glad I received it! I made a chunky bow out of the silk ribbon, added a flower and some homemade stick pins. The sentiment panel is a Lattice Rectangle with a Labels Eighteen die cut on top of that, stamped and sponged.







Now, who is up for some prizes?  
Hop along today and one lucky blog hopper will win a Ribbon Carousel and one lucky blog hopper will win a $50 gift certificate from There She Goes Clear Stamps!
