get well

** 3/25/16 Top 3 at Brown Sugar Challenge Blog! **

Hi everyone! Happy Spring to you all! Hope you are enjoying some Spring-like weather in your part of the world! I'm happy to share with you today a Really Reasonable Ribbon DT inspiration project. I created a pretty get well card using the amazing White Sheer Organza with Satin Center and Wine Organza ribbon. OMG, pictures do not do these ribbons justice! Both are just g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s.!

I had a great time with this card, starting with inking the emboss resist background, then stamping the basket and all the pansies. The stamps are all multi-step stamps which I love! Seems I've taken a liking to vertical sentiments lately so I used one on this card. ;)

Here's a close-up of the gorgeous double loop bow I created with my Bow-it-All v2.0. This particular color of organza is to die for! Just beautiful!

After stamping all the pansies and leaves, I fussy cut them and layered them in the basket, popping some up on foam pads for dimension. I ended up coloring the lightest inner portion of the pansies with a Spectrum Noir marker because the pink ink was just a bit too light.

I kept the inside super simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.
