Clearly Inspired Challenge # 12 - Ribbon with Royalty

Aaah Friday, not only is it Friday, but CIC Friday! Every other Friday, there is a fabulous challenge hosted by the super talented ladies at Clear Dollar Stamps . (ClearlyiStamp blog)  This week's challenge is "All tied up" i.e. use RIBBON. I got this idea for my ribbon feature while I was out in the desert walking my dog. I wasnt sure if it would actually work, but I am pretty happy with it! :0) I also paired the CIC challenge with the sketch challenge at Stampin' Royalty. It had been so long since I used my top note die, I forgot how it went thru the cuttlebug! (haha)

Ink: Real Red, Summer Sun, Always Artichoke, Momento Tuxedo Black
