Ribbon to "dye" for!

We just received a new shipment of ribbon from May Arts! I'm not sure which addiction is worse - paper or ribbon! YIKES! One of the fun new designs is this pretty tulip - it comes in purple and pink (the original colors are the purple tulip on the left and the pink tulip in the center). To add interest, I used a Copic marker to color the stem and leaves green. I used a darker purple Copic to color the tulip on the right and a yellow Copic (on top of the pink) to create the two orange flowers! I created the grass border with the Fiskars Grass Border punch, then nested the flowers behind it with mini glue dots. Isn't the lace ribbon stunning? It's also new and looks great on its own. But to add some contrast to the card, I wove one of the new 1/8" stitched ribbons through it. Pretty and spring-like! In addition to all of the ribbons shown here, we received other colors of the stitched 1/8" ribbon and fabulous 1/8" velvet ribbons (which look fabulous woven through the lace as well). Stop in soon and check them out! The sample is on display in the shop.
