fabulous ribbons

Here is some of the stuff I did for the new Raspberry Ribbons August kit which is Perfect Paisley. These ribbons are just wonderful and each kit has buttons and embellishments which co-ordinate beautifully.
I don't generally do shaped cards - I leave that up to my good friend Dawnie Pinkie cos she is just the shaped card queen xxxx but I thought I would do something a bit different. My template was a plate and the scallops are just 1" punched circles stuck round the edge. I faux embossed the pink card - ooo 'ark at me lol xx - and went a bit dotty with the old pearly dots.



For the next one, I used some of
this gorgeous paper which I got
from Creative Pastimes (it is a
shimmery coppery colour and I
just love it) and I embossed it with
the Cuttlebug folder. That big
beautiful bloom is from the
fabbytastic Poppicrafts.

The last one is using that beautiful freebie download from Summer which I told you about a few posts back. If you get a sec, pop over to Raspberry Ribbons are have a look what the other DT girls have done with their kits - you will just love them. And I got my new Septemeber kit today and it is STUNNING. I cant wait to have a fiddle with it. TFS xxx
