The team will be announced after this time

I don't really have just 3 or 5 favorite cards that I've done using ribbons, but I will try and
narrow it down.....  Here they are, But feel free to go through my blog to see all my creations:

This one uses lace, I tied a flat bow with the lace and added a brad to hold it together.
I also threaded some 1/4" ribbon through the holey lace and made a little flower with the lace as well.....

 This card uses some really awesome lace and a big bow......  I really loved how this turned out....

I really love the spotted ribbon, it just gives it a different look.....

I used some stripped ribbon on this card in very soft pastel colors....

This is one of my favorites,  I actually took and added ribbon around the top of my card
in a pleated fashion and then added a double bow.  This really looks awesome in person....
I kinda was just playing around trying to figure out something different.... 

 But please take a look around and you will see so that most all of my cards use
some sort of ribbon or lace on them.....  Especially my Christmas cards from last year.....
I used alot of the wire trimmed ribbon.....

Wish me luck on this Design Team Call......

Thanks for stopping by,
