Ribbon Ribbon Ribbon....

If you are like me, you have way too much ribbon...but, you still want more and when you get it, you gush over it...right?  One of our past sponsors, May Arts Ribbon sent some samples to Crop Suey and I was lucky enough to get some.  Check out their store, they have so much ribbon it is amazing...and yeah, you need more!!!


I used the wide grossgrain pink and pink satin they sent to create this. I made a double knot with the darker pink to create this cool look.


I also used several short pieces of narrow ribbon to create my flower in the top right of the layout. I just tied it once and kept layering it. It is definitely a great way to use up that ribbon so you can buy more!!!
