A card with Color and SOME CANDY

Hello Everyone and Happy 4th of July. I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend, spending time with loved ones and taking lots of photos to scrap. Today I've got a few cards to share with you that I did a while ago that have some great ribbon treatments that are super easy to accomplish. You can find a tutorial that I did on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for both of them here


For this first card the ribbon used are Light Yellow Satin, Lemongrass Satin,


The last card uses my favorite ribbon. I just love grosgrain, the texture and how well it shapes into anything. Dusty Lavender satin and Dark Olive grosgrain are such a stunning contrast.

What is your favorite color combination? Let me know and I will select 2 people randomly to receive a special treat. You have until July 10th to leave your comment!!!
