DeNami Ravishing Ribbons Blog Hop

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Welcome! If you are following the DeNami blog hop in order, then you should have come from the fabulous Wendy Elliot's blog. If not, and you want to start from the beginning, you can view the full list of participants over on the DeNami Design blog.


This month's theme is Ravishing Ribbons. I think we've all made a card with ribbons at some point, haven't we? I wanted to think a little outside the box for this hop, and decided to do a pleated ribbon. I wanted to make it a bit more interesting than just a one-color pleated ribbon. So, why not a three-color pleat?! I think it looks pretty fun this way! How about you? I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!


The background border is stamped using a flower stamp from the Ornamental Flowers Petit Fours set. I "colored in" each flower using Stickles. The top panel was punched using a corner punch, popped up with dimensionals, and stamped with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Thoughtful Greetings Petit Fours set. A very springy and sparkly card!

Thanks for visiting. Be sure to leave me a comment, and all the other hop participants' blogs for a chance to win one of two $20 gift certificates to the DeNami Design website!!
