Hello Ribbon

Hi friends!  It's Friday and time for a new sketch over in the Viva la Verve! forum.  This week's sketch comes from Maureen, whom I had the pleasure of meeting in person a few weeks ago.  She was just as sweet as I imagined she would be and we had such a fun time.

For my card, I pulled out the Take Note and On Occasion sets.  I stamped the sentiments from Take Note onto white cardstock and then added the border from On Occasion to the top and bottom edges.  The half circles in the sketch are cut from vellum, which I embossed with the Charles embossing folder, then accented with liquid pearls.  For embellishment I used some luscious new seam binding from the Summer Sailing Ribbon Collection  a bit of twine and a cabbage rose.  I finished off with some tiny orange rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

That's all from me. Today is a non-work day for me, so it's just me and the twins hanging out. I'm thinking about taking them on their first craft store shopping excursion. Trevor loves looking at bling and I need some glue. The entire contents of my ZipDry glue emptied onto my desk a couple weeks ago, so I've been using my hot glue gun to attach ribbon, but now I'm on my last glue stick. Dire straits, I tell ya! {grin}

I hope you have a fabulous weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  If you haven't already, be sure to check out this thread in our SCS forum for a $25 Verve giveaway!  And our Diva Inspirations Hop is still open for commenting through June 10.
