Another card, that took a little longer than anticipated. I can't believe I got as far as putting the finishing touches on it and realized that I didn't have the correct color of ribbon. aarrgghh! What to do? What to do? I know I will try the technique that I saw on someone's blog (sorry forgot whose and if it is you please let me know so I can give credit where it is due). I remember her saying that when she was crafting late at night and didn't have the correct color of ribbon, she would pull out her markers and use either white or creme satin ribbon and voila! she would have the color needed. Mine came out just a tad darker than the paper, but it definitely worked. I love purple if you haven't guessed by now and when I had begun picking out the papers to match the pictures it was almost as if this paper combination was screaming at me! LOL! Of course this is another picture taken by DH when we went and saw the wildflowers and I thought that this quote (which is a favorite of mine) worked so perfectly for this one flower that had just opened up. I think the world would be a better place if people applied this to their busy daily lives. What do you think?
