I {Heart} Ribbon...

Yes I do!!! I {Heart} Ribbon, how about you?!
*\O/* (<--- cheerleader...)

Yes. I love I when I found Nina's FABULOUS challenge (and spectacular blog), I knew it was fate!!!

I've also been dreaming of warmer weather...I really just want it to stay about 65*-70*F year round with very low humidity. Hey, a girl can dream, right?! :D

Anyway, this card tonight is a realization of my dream...on paper. ;D And, I used grosgrain ribbon as per this time's challenge. :)

I call it Gentle Breezes~


I wanted to keep it monochromatic, but I felt it was a little flat and so used a sponge to add some "sky". I used my favorite, over used and very much appreciated clear glitter gel pen for all the shimmery detail. I also used two ribbons--I usually do this with thinner grosgrain so that it can be a more prominent detail of the card or project. :) Hope you like it--I think it turned out rather well! :) Won't you come and join the I {Heart} Ribbon challenge?! It's so much fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek--I appreciate you! BTW-- if you like blog candy, check out my post HERE to find out how to maybe get some later on from me!!! :)

Oh yeah...a lighthouse...swoon!!! I adore them, this one looks like Cape Hatteras. Love what you've done with it and the sparkle too (of course) is a perfect accent. Your smidge of blue for the sky is pretty!

This is beautiful, it has such a serene feel to it, and I do like the flourishes behind the lighthouse.
