Embellish It with Ribbon

The Embellish Blog is holding a new challenge - such lovely colours- pink, turquoise and brown, and you have to use ribbon too.  So I took the opportunity to use some paper from a gorgeous new digikit by Shelly Castillo: Spring Fling. I LOVE grid papers, and am ALWAYS looking for new ones, and now I can re-colour to my heart's content. Hooray. 
And have you checked out THESE new paper flowers by Hero Arts - they are part of their new Hero Hues collections and they are gorgeous.  Oh, and you MUST check out their new layering papers too - these really thick papers are a must have.  I am always chopping up my lovely HA notecards, and now I don't have to.  Love it.
Supplies: PP - Shelley Castillo, Stamp, flowers, cardstock - Hero Arts; Pearls - Papermania; Ribbon - Creative Impressions; Nesties - Labels 8.
Happy Sunday.
