 Good Morning Everyone,

It's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and we would like to see your favourite way of adding ribbon to your projects.

Looking back I've realised I don't use ribbon as much as I used to.  I do dislike how the post office gauge letters by thickness so even a small bow can make cards go as a large letter.  If I do add ribbon, and it is to be posted, then I often add a flat strip with double sided tape.  I'm not saying I never use bows and I'm not really mean, it just annoys me as when it used to be by weight alone, it was a lot better.

My DT card is a little different to normal.  I've had this sentiment die from Whimsy stamps for quite a while and never used it.  It often looks too big next to an image so I decided to use it with my Delicate Flower Bed stamp from Altenew which I stamped with Pistachio Pudding from Stampin Up.  I've used gingham paper for the backing, ribbon and a few gems.  The green gems are showing up really bright with the light, but they are in fact the same colour as the ink.

The sponsor for the challenge is:
with a prize for the winner.

I would like to enter:

Thank you for taking the time to visit and have a good day.

Simple and stylish. I agree postage has made me design my cards a little differently now, it is such a shame. Elaine

I am with you all the way on the postage charges Lynne, I use very little ribbon these days for that reason!! What a gorgeous card this is, very classy and I love the green and white, really fresh and very pretty xx
