Fun with ribbon

Happy Thursday! I wanted to try different things with ribbon and here are some cards showing the result. First a card using this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch by Kazan:


I used some yummy Prima flowers and pearls. That pretty patterned paper is from this Vinnie Pearce digikit. And the grey Label and the brad are Pink Paislee.
Then a Mother's Day card for my Mom, another entry for the Hero Arts April Challenge "Home and Mother's Day":


Isn't that bird the cutest? It's from this gorgeous stamp set and I colored it with copics. The white stamping (love to do this on Kraft...) is made with these stamps. And the words are spelled with this Alphabet set.
And another card with pleated ribbon:


Again the stamping on the paper is made with the Speckled Ornaments set. And the patterned paper and this butterfly are from this FREE digi kit Vinnie Pearce offered on her blog. And Prima Pearls. Can't remember a card not using gems :)

I hope you are all well and that you have a great day! Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
