Ribbons Unlimited Design Team + Giveaway

Happy New Year! 2012 ended much better than it started. We had a tough time, but I'm happy that things have changed for the better. Our girl is healthy again and that is what's most important.

I would like to kick off the new year with some happy news. I'm one of the members of the first Ribbons Unlimited Design Team. Ribbons Unlimited is an established ribbon provider and I love to work with ribbon. More than a year ago I decided to step down from all my design team assignments due to personal circumstances. Now that life is (almost) back to normal again I would like to focus more on card making again.

Here's a card I made for one of Eric's friends who got a baby girl in December. I've been awaiting to receive my DT ribbon package so I used ribbon from my stash.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream), DCWV | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Ducks in a Row, Cherry Hill) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Night, Night Moon) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch: Tea Dye Duo, Sweet Blush, Smokey Shadow) | Button: Papertrey Ink (White & Cream Mix) | Twine: Cards & Wishes | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Tiny Tags Die, Block Alphabet Die Collection, Heart Border Die, Pinking Shears Border Die), sewing machine | Other: coasters, ribbon, lace fabric, felt
