DeNami Design Ravishing Ribbons Blog Hop

My first DeNami Blog Hop & I'm so happy you've come by.  I couldn't resist participating with the theme being ribbon--one of my favorite embellishments!  I knew I wanted to make a woven ribbon background since I hadn't used that on a card in a long time.  I also wanted you to see one of the butterflies in the new cling stamp set Fancy Flutters.  I stamped 3 times on white cs & 3 times on vellum using Color Box Sky Blue, Fresh Green & a combo of Apricot & Canary to make the peach color.  I just added pearls & stickles after they were attached to the ribbon.  The card is finished off with the beige ribbon tied in a bow & the DeNami greeting stamped at the bottom in VersaFine Onxy Black with 2 more pearls.




If you got here from Annette's blog HERE you're right on track.
