A Friday Two-Fer!

Hi all! TGIF...we're on the verge of the weekend!! I hope you have relaxing plans!

Moving on to ink, paper and stamps! This week I have a challenge and a tidbit! First.... the challenge! Stamp Simply (ssnotime83), courtesy of the talented Sharon Johnson, is all about threading it through! You can thread string or ribbon through your card, a button....whatever! Sharon is so great - she leaves a lot for interpretation which is fun because then you get to sit back and really see people's creativity shine! I especially love checking out the rest of the Stamp Simply team!

Jenny - April Guest Designer, Janine, Jennifer, AJ, Becky, Dee and Tammy!

Moving on to my card -- it's pretty simple! Here were my tools....

I cut off a bit of sheer ribbon, angled the edges and then threaded it through my decorative button!

And here... is how it turned out on my card!

I also wrapped the sheer around the stamped mat and then attached my button with a glue dot. Easy peasy!

This card using the new Vintage Wallpaper background and the matching set Thinking of You is also part of the Flourishes Focus -- which just so happens to be focused on ribbon tricks! I realize using a button isn't necessarily a "trick" but it might be an added embellishment that you might not turn to frequently! Stacy Morgan hosted the focus this week over on the Flourishes Newsletter and showcases a bunch of different ways you can add flair with ribbon! So be sure to check it out!

You can also visit the rest of the Flourishes DT, who are also showcasing their favorite tips!
