Monochrome & Ribbon

 Supplies: American Crafts Crimson Red cardstock, Red & 
White polka dot washi tape - Simon Says Stamp Kit of the Month 
May, Staz on black ink, Sentiment - You can do anything stamp set - 
Simon Says Stamp, Stars - Cuttlebug embossing folder, pop dots, 
red gem - Eastern Treasures and ribbon - from my stash.

This week's challenge on Paperplay this week is to create a monochromatic card/LO/Project and to incorporate ribbon into your creation.

We are very kindly sponsored by The Ribbon Girl this week.  I briefly met The Ribbon Girls (Mary and Andrea) at the NEC in Birmingham recently - wish I had time for a cuppa and a chat!  Next time!!!

I used ribbon from my stash but there is similar ribbon available from our sponsor right here.  I love this saddle stitched red ribbon.  I decided to keep my monochrome card very simple with texture being the feature.  I used my Big Shot and an embossing folder on some scrap cardstock and stamped the sentiment directly to the washi tape before adhering to the embossed cardstock.
