Coloring Ribbon to Match

A friend of mine is having a birthday in a couple days. I have wanted to make a card for several days now but just found the time to do it yesterday. I started by going through my stash of paper looking for an inspiration. I decided on this cute doodley-style paper from KaiserCrafts called Bloom Posy. It's double sided so you get both great patterns in one sheet!

Here's how the card turned out:

This is the inside:

I decided that the white stitch in the ribbon wasn't workin' for me. So I colored it. Here's a close-up showing the altered ribbon to match my cardstock. You can get more information on that here.

Have a great day!

  4. Beautiful card..love the papers you used.
