OWH Challenges!

Hey there Bleeps!
Today's card is for the Operation write Home Sketch Challenge #57 and it fits with OWH's any occasion challenge, too. I added the ribbon, but everything else is pretty much the sketch! I tried something new with my ribbon.....I took some scrap strips of seam binding and tied them into a knot and made them 'ruffle' by pulling the strands of string....then added a button from my stash my Grandma gave me years ago. Anyways, hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by! and have a great day! ;)

  1. Card stocks: Always Artichoke,VV and Crumb Cake
  2. Inks: Regal Rose,Always Artichoke,Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip
  3. Dreams du Jour stamp set in IB&C
  4. Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon
