DYSU #56 - Ribbon

Hey everyone!
Welcome to a new challenge at DYSU! This week is all about RIBBONS!!    If you are like me, then you have yards and yards of yummy ribbons in your stash, so, let’s take them out and give them some good use. 

For this week we have four great sponsors:

The Ribbon Reel
(Which is owned by our FABULOUS new DT member, Keilly)

Well, onto my project....I didn't use A LOT of ribbon but, there is a little snippet on there:

The lovely image and sentiments are from the Tea-rrific and Made By clear stamp sets by The Greeting Farm.  The teacup image and "serving sweet friendship" sentiment are from Tea-rrific and the "made just for you" sentiment is from the Made By set.  Not only does the "made just for you" sentiment itself go GREAT with the Tea-rrific set, but, it is also in the same it worked out PERFECTLY!

I used DP from the Echo Park Springtime 6x6 paper pad and paper-pieced the teacups.  The sentiment square was cut from PTI Rustic White cardstock using Spellbinders Classic Squares and then was sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar.  To finish it all off, I added a little snippet of satin ribbon from Celebrations (Michaels) and lots of flatback pearls in white (2mm, 4mm, 5mm) from Pizzazz Aplenty!

Here is a close-up of the tiny pearls that I added to the paper-pieced teacups:

I used the current Viva la Verve sketch (January Week 3 VLVJAN2012):

Anyway, this is a pretty easy challenge for most of us and I look forward to seeing LOTS and LOTS of FABUOUS projects over at DYSU, this week...I hope YOURS will be one of them!
