Now, for this weeks idea, Ribbon Trim.

This fun technique is also easy. To make the ribbon trim, cut a length of ribbon
a couple of inches longer than the area you want the ribbon to run across.
Cut a straight slit on either end a little wider than the ribbon you're using with a
craft knife. Tie a knot in the center of each piece of ribbon and put the ends through the slit. Tape the ends down on the back side (trim them if they are too long)

You can also make a rectangle or square ribbon trim around an image.

There is a picture tutorial on how to achieve this at

Today's card recipe

Papers -purple, pink and white card stock
Stamps - Medallion, Hero Arts - Inside sentiment, My Sentiments Exactly
Medallion stamped in light orchid, then used a water based marker to
highlight with darker purple before stamping.
Center of medallion is a large round brad that I covered with purple Glitter
White satin ribbon
Pink card stock is embossed with a Cuddlebug folder
White pearls by Kaiser
Fancy square die is Nellie Snellen
Medallion edges decorated with Star Dust Stickles

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until laer...............
