Using Stampin' Up's Wide Ribbon for Home Decorating

I need your Help!  The Grandkids always knock these curtains down going in and out the French Doors to the deck.  I decided to use Stampin' Up's Wide Ribbon to solve the problem.  Since my walls are RED, yes they are Red I am using the Cherry Cobbler wide ribbon to accent my sheers.  What do you think, (1) tie them in the back and have a straight ribbon for the front OR tie them in the front and let the tails hang down??  Email me: and let me know which you like.

Another idea for the wide ribbon is to use them behind picture frames and give a nice professional look to your hanging pictures.

Sometimes having a very dark background for a card can be very attractive.  Here Chocolate Chip cardstock is combined with the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder to provide the background.  Fun Flowers Bigz Die and the Big Shot are used to give us the Pink Pirouette Flower in the corner accented with a Pear.

Sweet Centers

The sky is the limit is what I call this card.  Using Stamp Set Sweet Centers and Teeny Tiny Wishes this card is light and airy.  Pacific Blue and Bashful Blue provide for a pretty sky.
