LIM Ribbons

I must have been having a psychic moment again last night when I did my CASual Friday card which was to create a card using rub-ons, but I decided to go for ribbon as part of my design which is one of the options for today's LIM challenge.  As I hadn't put last night's supplies away, there is a colour similarity to today's card!


I still need to make some samples for wedding invitation for our friends who are getting married next year so took the opportunity to make one design idea for them.  They're not sure of their colour scheme as yet so I'm just making samples in a variety of colours so they can just pick a design and we can apply the colour scheme once chosen.

This is a very simply design, two shades of pink matting and layering, and the focus is some more of the antique seam binding ribbon with a diamante heart ribbon slider.  The GORGEOUS sentiment is from the new collection from waltzingmouse stamps which is stamped and embossed with pink petunia versamagic ink - as this is chalky it doesn't emboss well on its own, but if you put an embossing ink on the stamp before the colour, then it holds the glossy embossing powder perfectly.

See you later
