Clearly Inspired Challenge #12

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Clearly Inspired Challenge on Lori McCroskey's blog..... today the challenge is to use ribbon.

Use Clear Dollar Stamps if you have them, if not, please play anyway....we would love to see your designs!!! A random winner will be chosen the following Thursday. Upload your cards to Mr. Linky on Lori's blog and if you upload to Splitcoast, use CIC12 in the keywords.

The butterfly from Clear Dollar Stamps Peace for the Journey set was stamped 3 times with Apricot Appeal on white cardstock, cutout, and layered with dimensionals. The antennas were drawn on and the sentiment from the same set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. A Spellbinders die was used for the scalloped border and the Cotton Candy ribbon and lavender pearls added to the flower centers on the Basic Grey Kioshi paper finish it off.
