Ribbon Heart For a Friend

Hello!
The other day I was looking though all of my beautiful ribbons that I have received from Really Reasonable Ribbon and there were some that I had not had a chance to use yet. I pulled the bundles out and the first 3 that hit my work table were these. It just struck me how bright and fun they looked together.
I decided to make a card with no colored image and to use the ribbons as a focal point. I made this cute little ribbon heart, added some Paper Temptress papers and a sentiment from  Clear Dollar Stamps. I put them all on a 4" by 4" card base and now have a sweet card to give a friend! 




There is still time to join us in the latest Really Reasonable Ribbon inspirational challenge. You could win a gift certificate for your own beautiful ribbons!

Thanks again for stopping by to take a peek!
Comments welcome!  ;)
Hugs,
True :D
