High Hopes and Ribbon Carousel Blog HOP!!

Howdy!

Today we are pairing up with Ribbon Carousel for a fun Blog Hop. Each of the High Hopes DT have used some ribbon from Ribbon Carousel while the Ribbon Carousel DT have each used an image from High Hopes. As you hop along each of the blog, be sure to leave a comment because there is candy from both Ribbon Carousel and High Hopes! 

Now if you haven't had a chance to look through the Ribbon Carousel's site... plan a little while! Oh my if you are a ribbon o'haulic like me it is a dream! A Candy Store of beautiful ribbons! I decided to use the gorgeous Pink/Light Pink Reversible Satin Stitched Edged Ribbon. Love the wide size, the heavy feel of the ribbon and adore that it is reversible. Or basically two shades of pink, one ribbon!

Here is my card - 

I had lots of fun using the new High Hopes image "Birthday Belle"  - too perfect for way to many ladies that I know! hehe

I colored with my Copics (colors below), added some stickles for some bling and fire glow. And then worked on my card with papers from Prima and the Rondelle collection. I sewed all the pieces together with a zig zag stitch. Then I ran my pretty pink ribbon across the card and tied a big ribbon. I took advantage of the reversible colors when tying to show off the darker side. Close up of the ribbon - 


Here are the Copic Colors - 

I hope you have fun hoping all around to all the DT's sites and seeing lots of High Hopes images with gorgeous Ribbon Carousel ribbon!
