'All Tied Up' over at CIC

We are 'All Tied Up' over at the ClearlyiStamp challenge blog! Since Clear Dollar Stamps debuted their new Summer Fun line in the Clearly Coordinating Collection of papers which included some delicious ribbon, we're using ribbon as our challenge. I figured what better way to showcase the ribbon than to pair it up with a new April release set called Blooming with Blessings!
I'm telling you, I love everything about the Summer Fun line. Their ribbons match their cardstock so wonderfully, and those papers work so well to emboss and layer. Oh, and just LOOK at that ribbon! Mmm, I tell you. . .but then again I tend to horde ribbon, hehe ;)
CDS Stamps: Blooming with Blessings
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Gray
Paper: Neenah Solar White, Turquoise Gem, Sweet Pea, BG Lime Rickey
Accessories: Copics, white gel pen, Labels 1, Labels 10, & Circle Nestabilities, sponge, oval cutters, rhinestones, Swirls embossing folder
Ribbon: Cherry Go Round, Tangelo Smoothie, Bee Pollen, Sweet Pea, Turquoise Gem, Still Waters, & Grape Jelly
