Changing Ribbon Color

Good Morning everyone!  This card was inspired by this weeks Clean and Simple Sketch.  I had received my new Fan Fair Paper and of course the three images you see in the center are just punched out, adhered to a piece of very vanilla card stock and then using an embossing folder, I embedded the images into the card.  My taffeta ribbon did not come in the color I wanted and I was going to use the very vanilla and then I thought, why not use my sponge dauber to make it the color I want it.  So that is what I did and it turned out beautifully.  Another challenge I decided to do this week is the SUO challenge where we are to make a thank you card.  So I added the thank you and then decided to use the card for a friend who helped me out this past Sunday while I was out of town and taught my ladies Sunday School class.  How great is that.  I put a verse on the inside that I thought was so fitting for the card.  And because I used the embedded embossing technique, it also fits our challenge this week at SULateNightStampers.  I was on a roll with this card.

Here is a side view of the card!

That looks fantastic, Jonia! "On a roll", huh? lol That's so funny! I don't know why it made me start singing "and the wheels of the bus go 'round and 'round..." haha Now that will be in my head ALL day! *groan* Great coloring on the ribbon. It looks like it came that way! Have a very happy day, my friend! :o)

Oh no... not the "wheels on the bus..." (tee-hee) that is one of those stay on the brain songs!!
Your card looks fantastic and look at all the challenges it met! I like how you lightly sponged the edges to match the ribbon. You rock!!
God bless! (and thanks for all your sweet comments)

So clever to use the bicycles from the DSP and change the ribbon color, too! Thanks for joining us at SUO Challenges this week!
