Happy Birthday Ribbon Carousel...and Some News!



Hi everyone!!  Happy Tuesday!!

I am here today to celebrate the 1st Birthday of The Ribbon Carousel!  YAY!  Corinna is a dear friend and I ADORE her, and my Ribbon Carousels!  I am SO excited for her and her fabulous store!!!

I created a card for her today (it went out a bit late girlie...but it should be to you in a day or so!) and I used the adorable Pure Innocence Something Special Just For You from My Favorite Things!  She was stamped onto X Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic Markers.  The patterned paper is the gorgeous new Indie Chic "Saffron" from My Minds Eye.


It's hard to see in the picture but I have a layer using some gorgeous Natural Cluny Lace Oval Crochet Ribbon and I tied some Natural Jute Twine on top of it.  I have been having an love affair with this Jute Twine lately...it's the perfect accent!  On top of a bow created with the Jute Twine, I added this fabulous Prima Flower!  Corinna has OODLES of flowers and embellishments, and you should check out the new papers in the Fresh Off The Spool category!  YUM!!


Here is a closeup of this little cutie.  I added some Rock Candy Stickles to her crown for a bit of shine.


On the inside I added more patterned paper and stamped "Congratulations".


Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:



You may be wondering why I am hopping along with the Crew today...well, I am SO excited to share that Corinna has asked me to join the crew!  I am having a blast so far and can't wait to share my creations with you! YAY!  You can see the announcement HERE!!!
