Embellish Ribbon Color Challenge

Hi, all! Hope you're happily making your way through another week. The weekend is just a few short days away...

Today I played along with Embellish magazine's latest challenge. Aren't these colors gorgeous? Plus I love ribbon, so this was a fun one for me. I'm also submitting this for Flutter By Wednesday #95.


I tried to think outside the box and used some gingham ribbon to make antennae for my butterfly. I then used the stitched ribbon in a more traditional way.

Hope you like it!

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: Cool Caribbean, Bazzill Basics white, PTI dp
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Nestabilities butterfly, stitched ribbon (A Muse), gingham ribbon (Bazzill Basics). Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, button (BasicGrey), rhinestones (The Paper Studio), embossed curve edger punch (EK Success)
