You're so special

A card I made a while ago, I combined some Hero Arts stamps with a Penny Black stamp:

Youre so special JAN


The flowers were colored with markers directly onto the wood block stamp. Really fun, takes a little time to color but really a pretty result. That ribbon, BTW, was a last minute improvisation. I knew I wanted to put a ribbon on this card, but what color?? There are so many colors on this card that I didn't want the ribbon to clash. So for the most subtle look, I found this 'grapefruit' pink ribbon from May Arts.

Will hook up with you all on your blogs soon! So sorry I haven't visited...Life + Summer = A bit of crazy around here.

See you soon!
