Ribbon Slides

I am in love with these new ribbon slides from Stampin' Up! They are part of the new Stylized Silver Hodgepodge Hardware sets available in the mini catalog. There was another blogger (Cambria) who used one of these with Crystal Effects and Chunky Glitter--a marriage made in heaven if you ask me! I mean, I thought the ribbon slides were cute, but now, I think they're fabulous. I used the 'clear' Chunky Glitter and it really picked up the green from the cardstock. This card was made for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge this week. I thought it was the perfect sketch for me to break in my new set, Serenity Now. Even though I only took yoga for two weeks, I had to have this set. I have a friend who teaches yoga so I am determined to make her a set of cards to justify the purchase :-)
Stamps: Serenity Now
Paper: Mellow Moss, Outlaw DSP

I love this stamp set by Verve Visual. The birds are just adorable and I could stamp with them all day. This card uses a similar color combo from the mini card I made last week using this set. The ribbon slide on this card was embellished with the pink glitter and it's just too cute! Don't you love how the simplest thing just makes you HAPPY! That's what adding this glitter to the ribbon slides has done for me--just makes me happy! What makes you happy? Leave a comment here to let me know and I'll send 5 of these ribbon slides your way! I will draw two names on Friday so please comment by 10:00 A.M. CST on Friday. Thanks for stopping by!
