Ribbon Rosette Thank You Card

Good morning everyone! Happy wednesday... just 2 more days until a nice holiday weekend, AND the Cricut Card Fairy blog hop. Be sure to stop back by for some great back to school projects, some awesome digi stamps, and lots of yummy blog candy! Starts friday so don't miss out!

I have done this card before as a birthday card, but I was commissioned to do a thank you version. The reason I am posting it again is because of the ribbon rosette I added to this version. I didn't have the right color flower but the perfect color of ribbon so I did this little rosette that I think goes perfectly! If you would like to learn how to do this, check out this you tube video from Butternut Sage Designs for a tutorial. I love this, it makes the perfect little embellishment! And it is fairly flat making it ideal for a mailable card.



Materials:

For those of you who did not see this when it was previously posted on my blog, I used one of the doily cuts from Cindy Loo, but hid the outside contour with the hide contour feature of Gypsy making it a window in my card. Once again, if anybody is interested in the cut file, you can request it using the contact form on this blog.
Paper is from Core'dinations.
Ribbon is a sheer one from Martha Stewart
Ink is Tim Holtz distressed.
I'm not sure about the stamp, just an old one I had hanging around.
I added little Teardrop Rain Dots in the top corners, these are from Cloud 9 designs and I have never used them before but I just love the effect.
