My Serenity!!

Okay, today I was having a major breakdown. It seemed like all my kids were screaming at me, being defiant, and just plain throwing fits! (That's right. I'm not perfect.) So my DH came home & took two of the children to run an errand. I got my 3 boys settled down and went in my "Loft" to calm down. It's funny that I was able to create such a sweet card when I was feeling so grumpy. It really helped my mood, though, and by the time that my DH came back I was fine. The chinese food that he brought me helped a little. :)

I tried something new for the ribbon that I have never seen before but was in my head for some reason. I doubled up some of the new yummy Papertrey Ink ribbon, twisted it, and added an eyelet on the left. I just used regular tape on the back to keep it down. I'll add the recipe under the photo.

Stamp Sets: Framed Greetings & Small Script from Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, & Spring Moss from Papertrey Ink; Whisper White & Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up!
Ribbon: Sweet Blush & Berry Sorbet from Papertrey Ink
Ink: Basic Brown from Stampin' Up!
Accessories: White minibrad, Stampin' Write Markers
Other: Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background, Corner punch from Stampin' Up! for the scallop border

  5. I really love how your double layered ribbon turned out - with a twist! I'll have to remember to try that some time!

    Sorry everyone else was on the triple trouble bandwagon, glad you can overcome the grumpiness and create something the exact opposite!
