Say it with...Ribbon - Annabelle Stamps

Hi! - How has your week been?  Mine has been pretty quiet (thankfully) after the busyness of the last couple of weeks I'm enjoying the slower pace this week has offered.

This week the Annabelle challenge is:  Say it with...Ribbon.  I must say this presented a bit of a challenge for me.  First off I wanted to use some of the ribbon that Andrea carries in the Annabelle Store but the only colors I have right now are from her "pink" line.  So I had to pick out paper that would work well with pink ribbon.  Next up was what to do with it other then just tying a bow.  I so wanted to do that really cool looking pleated ribbon style but quite frankly I'm challenged with a sewing machine so I nixed that idea.  Next up I tried knotting my ribbon but didn't like the way that looked.  Then I tried tying little pieces of thread around parts of the ribbon, which looked okay but the knots kept coming untied so I gave that idea up as well.  Finally I settled on "loops" of ribbon and also the tied bow.  What do you know, I actually liked this idea!So what do you think?

Oh Ida your card is HOT!!! Love the colours together.
Have you tried laying down a strip of strong tape and bunching up the ribbon over the tape? It's a different look......... worth a try. Have a great week end!
