A Big Bunch of Beautiful Ribbons & A Big Bold Birthday

Just dropping in to show you the beautiful In Colour Ribbons my Ribbon Club is going shares in this month. The Ribbon Club purchases a certain 'family' of Stampin' Up! ribbons every 2nd month, and goes shares in them. A lot more economical if you are not into using 13metres of one colour!

I still have a couple of 'shares' left in the In Colour Ribbons. For $11 you will receive 6m of In Colour Ribbons (1m x 6 In Colours) PLUS 2m of Gingham Ribbons (1m x 2 Gingham colours). See pages 150 & 151 of the IB &C for a better looksie, and contact me if this interests you. (P&H extra).

The card for today was one I made recently for a team swap. The theme was 'Retro Fresh Colours' (pp 10-11 IB&C). Pretty bright!!
Project Recipe:
Stamps: Big Bold Birthday, Best Yet (Hostess Level 1)
Card: Pacific Point, Glossy White, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Other: Kiwi Kiss DS Paper (Hoppy Memories Simply Scrappin); Crimper; Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Whisper White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Jumbo Eyelet, Crop-A-Dile, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Dimensionals
Til later,
Happy crafting!
