Roundabout Thank You

Wishes Roundabout 8" x 3.5"

The colors of this card are those of the last sample posted -- the "I miss you" card with July's stamp of the month hedgehog.  I did this card a few days earlier using the August stamp of the month Splendid.  I included Lilac Mist in the color scheme.

The distressed look on the Lilac cardstock was acheived by opening the Lilac Mist stamp pad up, and gently rubbing it in a circular motion on top of the cardstock.  The flower is a base/shade stamp.  The base was stamped in Lilac Mist second generation.  The shade stamp was first generation.  I did this to keep the card to four colors only.  The leaves were stamped and then rolled in Olive ink.  And, finally, the cut out flower is mounted.

A trick to ribbon laying flat is adhere a flat piece down to the area.  Take a second piece, 3" in length (minimumly) and tie a knot with it.  Adhere that onto the ribbon that is already down.  Another thing you can do is take the 3" piece and tie it around the long ribbon piece.  Then adhere that down.  This technique will result in the ribbon being pinched at the knot.
