Lost and Found

I was lucky enough recently to receive a free gift with a Stampin' Up order, amongst it was some wide, striped gross grain ribbon. It was in Rich Razzleberry which is a gorgeous deep raspberry colour. Today was the day that I was going to use it and whilst rummaging around in a cupboard I found two stamps that hadn't seen the light of day for a long time. In fact I had forgotten that I even had one of them! So they were dragged out and given an airing in honour of the occasion.
They are both quite intricate stamps so I kept the colour scheme simple. I matched the ribbon with some card stock and ink and added a touch of green - take a look
The tulips were stamped twice before re-inking to give a paler tone to the Rich Razzleberry. As the ribbon was so wide I also added a strip of vintage lace . The sentiment was stamped on to a hand cut cut label and some pinky green gems were then added to finish it all off.
I am entering this card into
The Fashionable Stamping Challenge
where the theme is 'Ribbon or Lace'
Hope everyone enjoys the Bank Holiday - bye for now - Jacqueline xx
