I Can't Make a Card Without Ribbon

First of all I have to say that I am SO happy with the way this card turned out! My Hubby gave me the idea of watercoloring a blue sky in the background although it is difficult to see from the picture. I went with a very simple layout and kept the focus on the stamped images. For this card I used the retired SU set "Tags and More" and the sentiment and tree are from the current Winter Mini SU set "Season of Friendship". If you don't have this set I totally recommend getting before it's too late! I love this set! I used the SU Mat Pack and paper distresser to rough up the edges. The ribbon is SU Choco Chip grosgrain. Speaking of ribbon I almost didn't add any ribbon to this card, but I just had to! I can't make a card without ribbon. But, I really should use as much ribbon as I can since I have enough to last me until the end of time. LOL Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope that all of you are having a great weekend!
