Tales from the ribbon obsessed....

I am such a tactile, texture person that I could never truly give up traditional (as opposed to digi) scrapping. Not that I'm super girl with the computer anyways... but still. There are just too many fun things out there to run beneath my fingers - satins and twills and crochet and twine, grosgrain, denim and more... what's a girl to do, really, but collect them all?
I have a serious addiction to ribbon. Jars and drawers and nooks and crannies are all jammed pack, not to mention the pockets of all of the scrap bags I own. I even scour the monthly kit clubs and order them based off of their ribbon offerings alone. So, needless to say, when this week's ribbon/fiber/floss challenge came up at Practical Scrappers, I was practically drooling with excitement!
For this springy card, I used the Basic Grey Sugar Rush card kit and made my little random flower petals out of some sparkly pink twill that I had in my stash. I also added a little scrap of gorgeous orange crochet trim behind my popped-up sentiment.
Check out our DT's amazing work - it's the last week for the current Practical Scrappers team - so be sure to say fond farewells those lovely ladies. Our new team starts up next week, and their talent is going to knock your socks off!
Scrap happy. friends!

Thank you for the warm welcome to Practical Scrappers DT Team :) Your card is lovely. I agree with you completely. I could never be a digi-scrapper. It's just to much fun playing with all those ribbons, fibers, etc.
