Rainbow Mojo Give-Away: Day 2 of 10

It's an ORANGE kind of day on this, our second day of the Rainbow Mojo Give-Away. (For rules and such, please see this post.)

Orange is the color of happiness, and I find myself particularly drawn to it in the cold, gray, winter months. In its darker shades, it's the color of warmth and coziness and pumpkin pie. Yum. For today's card, I went bright and cheerful, using SU Only Orange. This set from PTI hasn't seen enough action in my craft room yet, so I pulled it out and made a happy card!



Not sure you can tell, but there are embossed lines above and below the ribbon. I ran out of orange 3/8" ribbon a few months back and totally panicked. Nothing else would do but to run right out and buy not one but TWO spools. I'm good on orange grosgrain ribbon for a long time. What a relief!

Personally, I think there need to be teeny, tiny blings small enough for centers for these flowers, don't you? Does anyone know if the A Muse tiny twinkles are small enough? Just wondering. The Hero small bling is just too big. Sigh. Bling makes almost anything better.

And now to today's Orange Mojo Give-away! Which, of course, includes bling.



Contents
1. Four lengths of ribbon, including the rick-rack I used on this card
2. One length of craft floss (oh, I had so much fun with this the other day but haven't photographed the card yet!)
3. Maya Road velvet flowers...so gorgeous and tactile but not bulky!
4. PTI buttons
5. Tiny safety pins
6. Small brads
7. Hero Arts orange self-adhesive rhinestones

Today's Rainbow Mojo Give-away Question: What's your favorite type of ribbon to use on a card? Satin? Sheer? Rick-rack? Grosgrain? Skinny or fat or in between?

Note: I totally understand that it's hard to choose favorites, but maybe you can think of what you simply couldn't LIVE without or what you think of as your "go-to" ribbon. Or maybe you don't like ribbon at all, in which case I feel sorry for you. For me, my go-to is probably 3/8" grosgrain in all colors imaginable. A close second would be the satin-and-sheer I've found at Michaels.

As for yesterday's question, while I love all colors in the right context, my can't-live-without color is green (lime, apple, olive, sage, forest).

  2. love your card....my fav ribbon is any colour with polka dots...med. width. Oh yeah, love gingham too...so fun.

  3. Wow, orange is such a bright and cheery color....such a cute card! My favorite ribbon is wide and thick - at least 1 1/4, but it's hard to make a knot or bow and mail this, so my go to ribbon for mailing is 3/8 grosgrain.

  4. I'm with you... grosgrain is my #1.
    Love the orange in your beautiful card!

    ReplyDelete
  5. The 3/8 grosgrain is my favorite too! I think it adds a neat texture to cards and is easy to work with and I LOVE being able to try out several different types at a cheap price by getting the $1 spools at Hobby Lobby here in my hometown. It's just enough to sample, but not so much that it wears you out on one color/pattern. Love the card, and totally agree about the bling. I'm all for some bling! A little dot of Stickles instead? Not quite the same, but hey, it's sparkle!

    ReplyDelete
  6. ALL of it! :) For girly cards, I like satin or sheer; for more casual or masculine cards, gotta go for the grograin. I have a lot of narrow ribbon - 1/4" - 3/8" - but find myself gravitating towards the 5/8-7/8" more and more; makes such NICE full bows!

    ReplyDelete
  7. My favorite ribbon is half inch sheer dotted swiss. It makes a great bow every time. My second is quarter inch gingham. Texture of ribbon makes such a difference. I tend to hoard the stuff I love! Love that orange. It's not one of my "go-to" colors. I've been looking at kids clothes for color combinations - and have recently noticed lots of cute oranges!

    ReplyDelete
  8. My absolute favorite ribbon to use on a card is grosgrain, and I use it 98% of the time. I like satin sometimes, but that's so "dressy" I usually save it for wedding, Baptism, etc. I like sheer, too.......sometimes. But my fave is grosgrain, in 3/8" size. For teeny, tiny rhinestones, I've been buying the adhesive whole flowers, letters, butterflies, etc. from Michael's (usually in the sale bin, that are made up of multiple rhinestones. You're supposed to use the whole thing, but I use my tiny scissors to cut off each tiny rhinestone. I love it! Cheap, and perfect size. I got an orange butterfly there last week, 50 tiny stones to it, that would have been perfect for your umbrella!

  9. I like grosgrain ribbon the best. I tend to lean towards thinner kinds of grosgrain, though. Thanks, and have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  10. perfection in orange! love that embossed detail, very subtle. yeah, I'm a grosgrain lover, too! I do love the PTI saddle-stitch ribbon.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love rick-rack and use it a lot. It just gives that playful look to my cards and I think it is so versatile for any mood of card.
    Love your card of the day. :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. Gingham ribbon that I can age is my choice these days. However, lots of soft, silky fibers are better for tags with mailing issues.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love ribbon but hardly ever see the 'need' to put it on my cards (not wanting my cards to be too fussy).

    I found a good way of incorporating it the other day though. A few eyelets either side of an oval with my stamped image (love birds) and 2 small pieces of sheer white ribbon applied to either side. Hopefully that lame description makes sense!

    I will get my blog up and running ONE day!! In the meantime... I like sheer ribbon the best and grosgrain too. It has to be a decent width but not so thick that it takes over!

    In your next blog post, Susan, do you think you could include how you attach ribbon to your cards (such as the orange card for today)? I have tried all manner of methods without much luck.

    Thank you :)

    P.S - Your blog is a "go-to" of mine for a little happiness and inspiration :)

  14. My fav is black and white ribbon gingham ribbon. I goes with sooo many things and I don't have to worry that I don't have the right shade of pink, or red, or whatever :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a bright, happy card -- so nice on a cold windy day. Black and white or brown and white gingham are my go to ribbons. It seems like they match almost anything and add just the right touch.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Grosgrain in different sizes....

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love 3/8 inch grosgrain. A simple knot lays fairly flat for mailing, and it comes in so many solids and dotted or striped colors. I have some soft narrow herringbone ribbon from TE that I love, also good for mailing. I love the texture that it adds, and it doesn't take over the card.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Such a cheery post! I love orange, too! It started when I started scrapbooking because otherwise I cannot wear it, it's just not for me. But on scrapbook projects it's just perfect! So this is a perfect giveaway for me! ;-) As for the ribbon, satin works great for me! Not too thick not too thin, just in between! Nice Tuesday to you!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I find it really hard to use the wider ribbons, so thinner (1/2 inch or less) are my favs. Don't have many satin ribbons (guess I need to fix that!).

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm a narrow grosgrain ribbon gal for mos things; green rickrack is the best "stem" for flowers and the gold or silver narrow ribbon is great for elegant cards. And then there is the wide satin picot ribbon layered with a narrow grosgrain. I'm a ribbon gal!

  21. Lately I've been turning to satin more than anything else. It just seems easy to get it to lay nice and flat - not too bulky.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love this card! I would definitely say that satin is my go-to ribbon...right now anyway. :0)

    ReplyDelete
  23. SU or PTI 5/8" grosgrain, PTI gingham, and I adore CSS's 5/8" satin ribbon - it's double sided and it's pure heaven to tie. I'm ashamed to admit to how much ribbon I have.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ooooh, this card is PEEEERFECT! I got this set in my delivery this morning (see my blog if you wanna see what lucky girl I am today,lol). I adore orange too so this jumped right out from my sidebar.

    As for my favourite ribbon?? Well, I LOVE grosgarin - all sizes - I love how it ties and you don't have to worry that the back is different to the front - a nuisance with bows!! HOWEVER, I just bought lots of PTI twill so I may have a new favourite coming up in the future!!!

    Hugs,
    Caryn xxx

    ReplyDelete
  25. Very cheerful card and you are using my favorite color. When it comes to ribbon, I prefer silk that is under 1". It ties beautifully, and doesn't add bulk to a card.

    ReplyDelete
  26. i love wide grosgrain, who cares if it's bulky!? i just found some 1-1/2 inch red and i got 9 yards, i can't wait to ruffle it and loop it and tie it!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love layering 5/8 sheer with 3/8in coordinating colors.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh Susan!! I LOVE this card!! I think it looks great just like it is! But I know I LOVE bling too...The bling may make it to weighed down vision wise...Its perfect!!! You have any orange stickles I see people put that stuff on just right and it looks like bling...Have a Happy Day! Hugs...

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would also have to say the 3/8" grosgrain is my favorite for cards. Perfect size and easy to work with, doesn't fray as much as the sheers do.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love ric rac. It reminds me of when I was little. My mom loved to sew and ric rac was a staple of hers. Lynnette

    ReplyDelete
  31. your orange card is devine and so bright and sunny. Just what I need because it is so foggy here this morning!! Your little knot is perfect...just wanted to say!! My go to ribbon is actually twill!! I love it's masculine feel and yet can also be soft and elegant when used in the right way. I also love that it can be adhered flat and simply cut along the sides of the panel or card with a nice clean edge!! A close second would be PTI's satin ribbon... ties beautifully!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love all ribbon, but my favorite is the twill ribbon from Papertrey Ink. I like the way it looks and ties.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, what a fun idea for a giveaway!! Thank you for the chance to win! I do love ribbon, and I guess my favorite is the organza kind, maybe 1/2" or so wide or narrower. I use lots of pastels, and that gauzy look seems to go nicely with them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My go to ribbon is grosgrain. I bought a lot, spools of 100 yards each, while living in China. I have a lot to use and it was very cheap at only 5 dollars a spool! For that price it can be my go to ribbon!!

    I am so excited to see what you will do for all the colours of the rainbow.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't think to use Orange very often, but it definitely is a cheerful color! Love your card! My favorite ribbon would probably be satin, medium width. I also like the sheer narrow ribbon at Michael's.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love satin ribbon all colors...

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think my favorite is anything in a kinda wide width, like 3/4 inch? And satin probably is the best.

    Orange rocks. I love your card.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My favorite width of ribbon is 5/8", and it used to be the Grosgrain type, but now the new SU! Satin ribbons are creeping in to take the favorite spot. It just seems that the satin ribbon can tie cleaner, flatter knots and frays less when I cut with really sharp scissors than the grosgrain.

    Also, FYI, Memory Box makes TEENY TINY sparkle rhinestones (they call them jewels) that would work great on those flowers, they sure are TINY (2mm).

    ReplyDelete
  39. Gotta love 7/8" of satin ribbon. Use that alot in various colors. After that, I prefer the 7/8" grosrain - I guess I like wider ribbon!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Taffeta ribbon is my favorite!

    I love your card and set from PTI. It looks perfect in orange! We could use some sunshine here -- anything to help melt the snow!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I didn't use ribbon on my cards until I started reading your blog over a year ago. I use black or gold sheer 3/4" for elegance and red or yellow 3/8" grograin when I do use ribbon.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Right now it's grosgrain. No wider than 5/8 inch.

    I love he look of satin, but still need practice getting my knots perfect. When that happens I may have a new favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love grosgrain and I use it a lot. I think satin makes the nicest bows. And rick-rack is just too cute. And sheer... well, I don't know that I could pick a favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I don't think I can make a card without some sort of ribbon on it. My favorite seems to be the 3/8 inch grograin, but I also love the 1 inch grograin. My go-to favorite color is brown.

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a cheerful card! I've never been into orange, but find myself colouring with it- a lot-lol! I'm all out of orange ribbon, too. As for type, I've always leaned towards silk as it is the best for bows - really!, but also love grosgrain for it's strength. It's a sturdy ribbon (even the 1/4") and can make a statement all on it's own.

  47. Cute card! My favorite ribbon right now is 1/4" dotted satin. I like ribbon on cards and use it a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  48. For cards I prefer grosgrain. The orange for sunshine on gray days must be getting a workout..even in AZ this year.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love your site! My favourite type of ribbon is flat satin from a skinny to medium width.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Susan, Amuse MICRO Twinklers are very small - I use them all the time - they are my favorite.
    My go to ribbon is satin - any width. I find I can tie a much better bow with it and it lays flatter for mailing purposes.
    This year I have come to love orange - never have before!! Could it be your creations that inspire me?? I think so!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Satin ribbon is probably my favorite and when it's some luscious color, who could resist. A fat pink satin bow -- can you ever get too much of that ? :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Grosgrain is the easiest for me to work with, but I'm open to anything.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love using Midori satin ribbon. It's so elegant to add to cards and you and also stamp on it too.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love wide grosgain but my 'go to' at the moment seems to be thin and satin especially if it's black!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love all kinds of ribbon. My favorite right now is silk. I just got a whole spool of it in white because I figure it will dye very well with reinkers. I got it in a 1 inch width.

  56. Wonderful card, Susan, as always! That's a really tough question, as I don't really use ribbon very much (although I have a fair amount) but it really depends on the card. OK. I guess my favorite kind would be a satiny ribbon:) Thanks for a fun few days of give-aways.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Ahhhh! And there's my orange! One of my favorite colors!! haha.
    Hmm, as far as ribbon goes, I'm still learning. When I'm brave enough I go for the skinny grograin.
    Love your card!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Good Morning Susan
    I like the sheer in between size ribbon
    I really enjoy your cards, you make them so much fun to do.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I would have to choose sheer. I love how elegant it looks and my bows seem to turn out well. For a real standout and more casual look, I love grosgrain.

    Sorry, I couldn't choose just one ribbon.

  60. For the purposes of this question, I'd like to claim "papertrey ink" as a category of ribbon. :)
    I have a very hard time making a purchase from them without throwing in a spool or two! However, my desert-island pick would probably also be medium grosgrain, since it suits nearly every style. Anything polka-dotted is also a winner. Oh, and ric-rac. Sheesh.
    By the way, I'm so excited that it's orange day!

    ReplyDelete
  61. For bows, I love satin; for knots, I love a thicker grosgrain. And I LOVE Papertrey's ribbon -- perfect for bows and knots, but I have BOXES of ribbon!

    ReplyDelete
  62. What a happy card. I agree, on a grey morning this is a real pick-me-up.
    I tend to use 5/8 grosgrain the most. But I read somewhere on the web that it is falling out of favor and satin ribbon is the new grosgrain. Humph, better use up all my ribbon and buy new!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Your cheerful card matches the sun shining outside my window! As for ribbon, grosgrain is first with sheer of any width coming in at a close second.

    Right now my current obsession is PTI saddle stiched ribbon. I just love it! Of course I have it in Pure Poppy since, as I told everyone yesterday, Red is my most fav color! I have a couple other colors and am building my collection! :)

    I would love to win as I am typing this comment frech from my root canal. :(

    I love the card! I am sort of a newb to PTI and this stamp set is one on my wish list! :) TFS.

    ReplyDelete
  65. My favorite ribbon is satin mini dots. I use all sorts of ribbon, but this is emerging as my new fav.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I am all about the satin 5/8" ribbon! So luscious!!!! Thanks for the chance to win your fabulous orange embellies!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I LOVE ALL RIBBON!! Depending on the type of card I'm making as to just what ribbon I use. Whenever I shop I go down the ribbon aisle to see if there is anything unusual that I like. Thanks for a chance to win your orange goodies!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. You recently used a burgundy satin that was sooooo beautiful I immediately wanted some, but in general I use grosgrain for masculine cards and, for girly cards, my newly-discovered-silk leftover from silk embroidery I did many years ago.

    I Love your card today, but almost never use orange myself. Of all the colors of paper I have, the Orange folder is the shrimpiest.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Love your card, Susan!

    My favorite ribbon is grosgrain, because I love the texture. I almost never tie a knot or bow, so I just adhere it in a strip across my card (I mail virtually all my cards and want them to be flat!). I also love PTI's twill.

    Speaking of flat cards--and since you asked about tiny bling--I thought I'd mention a product by Stampendous called Dot Sparkler Class A'Peel stickers. They come in a tiny size that is perfect for tiny flower centers. You can load up your card, and it is still flat for mailing. Here's a link:

  70. I'm wearing an orange jacket today! How funny! Once of my co-workers told me I'm the only person she's met that wears lime green or orange. Love it! And, love Love LOVE your card! Can I have it? Please? Okay - my fav ribbon is skinny black and white gingham, especially on light green cards. My fav WOULD be wide satin as I love the look, but sadly I don't have any.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hey girl! I just had to comment today as I LOVE orange!! My ribbon favorites change with the days of the week, but today my fav is grosgrain, not the 1/4", but 3/8 or 5/8" -solids, striped, whatEVAH! Love the grosgrain!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Rachel B. (brightrk81@msn.com)March 2, 2010 at 2:32 PM

    I would have to say that my favorite ribbon to use is satin. It just ads an elegance and omph to cards when they seem to be lacking that certain "something".

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love all ribbon but my favorite is SU's wide striped grosgrain in chocolate and cream. It is as yummy as it sounds!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Such a happy card, love it! I don't know if the Amuse bling would work but what about using a glitter pen and just making a dot in the center of each flower? Just a thought.

    My all time favorite ribbon is 3/8 grosgrain! In tons of gorgeous colors.

    ReplyDelete
  75. My go-to ribbon is grossgrain medium-ish, but I lvoe to use fat satin ribbon on my fancy cards.
    I saw an orange purse just last night and thought it would be so fun to carry this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Ohhh, I just love this card Susan! I love the colors and everything about it is just stunning! My favorite ribbon was grosgrain but it's looking like I'm not leaning toward satin. Hard to say, it depends on the card. Whatever it is, tho, my cards always cry for a ribbon of some sort.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Striped or patterned grossgrain medium width because I love to co-ordinate stamped images, paper/card and embellies with the colors on the ribbon. And after green, orange is my fave color too!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love grossgrain ribbon in 1 cm width. I like the texture of it.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I like using velvet ribbon.
    Thanks Geraldine

  80. I would say either grosgrain or silk ribbon. Grosgrain for everyday type cards and silk for elegant/fancy cards.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I have only posted a comment once before but I have to tell you that I love the simplicity of your cards. They exude a certain elegance that I am so attracted to. I visit daily :)
    My favorite ribbon is sheer and satins. I love plaids and polka dots, but plain is good too. I'm a ribbon fanatic so it all works with something.
    Thanks for your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Would a little drop of clear Stickles work for the center of the flowers? I've used it to add just a hint of subtle sparkle.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Grosgrain ... plain, striped, polka-dotted, you name ... if it's grosgrain, I'm coveting it.

    Have you tried Liquid Pearls for the centers of those l'il flowers?

    ReplyDelete
  84. I hate orange, so if you randomly choose my comment, please choose someone else! I just wanted to share that my favorite ribbon is medium-sized grosgrain. Couldn't do without that!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love orange - Allis Chalmers Orange! My favorite ribbon is grosgrain.

    ReplyDelete
  86. My favorite ribbon is double-sided satin, but what I have lots of & use most often is 3/8" grosgrain.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I love ribbon. In fact, I've hasd to tell myself to stop buying ribbon (unless I find a great deal on something I can't resist). My favorite would have to be grogain - not too wide and not too narrow. The possibilities are endless with it - solid, striped, checked. What's not to love?

    ReplyDelete
  88. I miss the wide sheer organdy ribbon that SU sold. It added elegance. Now I favor taffeta ribbon.
    Love your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I have to say grosgrain of any size. I love it's texture.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I absolutely love the 5/8 satin ribbon that Stampin Up has now. It's awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I happen to love sheer ribbon, cuz I think it adds to the colors used, but without overpowering, kwim?

    ReplyDelete
  92. 91 comments so far? Oh. My. Gosh!!!

  93. Wendy in CentervilleMarch 2, 2010 at 9:05 PM

    Definitely grosgrain; narrow if I'm making a bow.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I really like organdy ribbon, cuz my fav cards to make are girly, sweet and pretty, but I also love soft silky satin ribbons in pastel colors...

    ReplyDelete
  95. Well I love grosgrain, but lately twill it's making me happy too!
    Love that happy card.

  96. Grosgrain makes me happy... but so does your card :)

  97. Love the card! I live in the Pacific Northwest and have decided I need to get an Orange Umbrella to add brightness to the gray days of rain.
    I favor satin...love the lushness! Also like fibers- for the fun!

  99. I love to use grosgrain a lot but sometimes I like satin for more sophisticated cards.

    On a side note, I'm very certain A Muse twinkle stickers will work for the flower centers. If the regular size ones are too big, then the micro dot twinkle stickers should be the right size!

    ReplyDelete
  100. My favorite is 3/8" swiss polka dot sheer ribbon. It is so pretty!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  101. I can't imagine living without ribbon! My personal favorite these days is SU's taffeta ribbon. I only wish they offered it in more colors! I hear that silk ribbon is a dream to tie and not bulky at all, but I just can't justify spending any additional dollars right now!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I love all kinds of ribbon....but gingham is my favorite.....

    ReplyDelete
  103. These have been hard questions so far Susan! I think for a favourite ribbon type I'd have to pick grosgrain, specifically PTI's Saddle Stitch version of it! I just find it so versatile for masculine and feminine cards, and the width is just right to make nice bows!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I do love grosgrain because of the color choices, but lately have used a lot of A Muse 1/4" dotted Swiss. I do think the A Muse "bling" would work, but you can also use a Sakura Stardust pen, or stickles! Very cheerful card!

  105. I completely agree with you on 3/8" grosgrain ribbon. It's either understated or completely luxurious depending on what's on the card. If I see a new colour I usually buy whatever amount they have, I know I'll use it. The card is beautiful, in my new favourite colour.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love all ribbon. My favorite is satin 3/8 inch.

    ReplyDelete
  107. My favorite ribbon is any that matches the card I'm making at the time. My favorite color is brown. I think it goes so nicely with any color, especially pink or blue. It's so neutral. But I LOVE IT!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I love satin ribbon...any color but particularly brown. I have a stash of wider ribbon...need to find a good way to use it, though. but for now...it just sits there, making me happy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  109. The easiest for me to work with is 3/8 grosgrain. As always, love your cards!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Wow Just looking at your card made my mouth water for an orange=) My fave all time ribbon to go to is black with white polka dots. It seems to go with just about everything. Thanks so much for the chance at Orange Blog Candy. Love your blog!! Collette katshon66@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  111. Wow I don't use orange often but sure is petty. My fav. would be grosgrain oh 1/4 inch and satin for fancier cards.
    Your cards are just so beautiful!

  112. I love using Martha Stewart ribbon, usually narrow and two toned. The one i love most has brown edges and either blush or aqua in the middle.

  116. Beautiful card, so bright and cheerful. I love all ribbon. Each provides a different look and feel. I do love anything with a little polka dot on it.

  117. I'm new to card making so I don't have much experience with ribbons. I tend to use grosgrain when I do use ribbon, but I've ordered some satin and twill to try.

  121. I LOVE all kinds of ribbon! My favorite is 5/8" grosgrain swiss polka dot -- especially on "fun" cards. I like to use satin on my dressier cards. Thanks for the opportunity to win some treats!

  122. Loved your orange card! I thought that it's vibrant cheerfulness wasn't needed this morning as much as it has for the perpetual gloomy greyness we've had for four months. Just in the time I thought that, it clouded back over and started to rain--again! So I needed your card desperately after all!
    I had some hand-dyed silk ribbon I bought in a little boutique that made the most luscious cards. Need more, but also love to use grosgrain, velvet, polka dots, stripes. . . .

  125. Depending on my project. I love silk ribbons on cards because they are light ans fluffy and make tiny knots. I love satin ribbons on layouts...any sweet fruity color would get me :-)
    Thanks a lot for the chance to win!

  126. I really like PTI's silk ribbon, but don't have many colors yet. And I also hoard it. I use grosgrain most often since I have it in so many colors. Thanks for the giveaways!
