Ribbons ahead

Happy June! It's my first post since the start of the new month, 2013 is flying by. The challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut is Ribbons, Ruffles and Bows. I chose to go with the ribbons for my card today. 

Our school had graduation this week so it was a busy one which made for less crafting time. My card is  pretty basic. I think I took more time looking for paper than anything. I used the Heritage cartridge and cut the cameo at 3 1/4". The background was cut from the Lacy Labels cartridge at 5". There is some green in the patterned paper but it doesn't show well in the photo. The lace/ribbon is from Michael's. I layered 2 rows of lace down the center of the card and then placed the velvet ribbon on top. The patterned paper is from Prima and the solid is stash. The buttons and pearl are from my stash. I inked around the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress ink although it doesn't show up much. ( I really need to figure out the lighting for my pictures:/)

I hope everyone has a great day! (Be sure to stop at all of the DT members blogs and leave them some love, we all appreciate it!)
