i {heart} papers Wide Ribbon Challenge And Contest!


Every Month the i {heart} papers design team has a challenge, this month the challenge was to use wide ribbon. I love, love, love wide ribbon and use it all the time on my cards. For this card I used the luxurious May Arts silk ribbon. It makes such pretty bows and is so easy to tie. The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Porcelain pack. I used the new Spica mint glitter pen on the flower tips and to highlight the thanks, it is just the right amount of sparkle IRL.
