Just Us Girls #252 - Word Week

It's Word Week at Just Us Girls, and Nancy has chosen the word "RIBBON"!  I was so happy to see this because I have tons of it and haven't used it in a while.
 
I wanted to use the ribbon in a different way on my card.  I decided to use the ribbon to die cut the leaves for the flower.  Then I wanted to incorporate more of it, so I used it as a border on either side of the white panel.  This die and stamp set are being used for the first time.  It's from Simon Says Stamp and I just love it!  The die cuts out the little tag on top and then the stamp set has several different flag stamps that fit into the opening. 
 
You can see more of what the JUGs DT did with ribbon on these blogs.  We also have a new Guest Designer on board for August (is it August already?).
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Love the ribbon leaves...but tell me did you trim them by hand after you adhered them to card stock or did you just cut the leaves out of the ribbon itself??? Great card!
