First I love the blocks of color on the side - but see how that ribbon is bunched up along the side? It's such a beautiful border and and elegant way to use the Seam Binding Ribbon.

In this cute project (found in my Stampin' Up online store) you can see the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon being used as handles on this cute Halloween Treat!

I love how this 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon is attached to the side of the card and then the Baker's Twine is tied to he Taffetta Ribbon as an accent. Cards like this and other projects can be found on my Stampin' Up business site.

If you notice, this is the White Organza Ribbon but Martie Shea, a fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator used the Not Quite Navy reinker to dye her ribbon to match her paper. Gorgeous!
