Fabulous Sage Cocoa & Hanna Stamps Sneak Peek Update

I've had this Cosmo Cricket 'Gretel' paper for a while now, and haven't used it as much as I'd like. I stamped the large flower from Fabulous Flowers (SU) in Craft White ink, then embossed over it in a mixture of clear embossing powder & Dazzling Diamonds. I love the sparkle this flower has---yet it still looks aged a bit, due to sponging the edges of each of the flower's layers with Cocoa ink. I used several different colors and patterns of ribbon for this Ribbon Blossom--the light 'sage'-blue ribbon is Martha Stewart, and the others are from Michael's, Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby. I'm not too picky about brands, or buying from specific stores---if I find ribbon for a good price, or on sale, and like what I see, I stock up! When I first started stamping, I was lucky enough to find a store that had most of their ribbon on clearance for 10-cents a roll. I think I bought every roll they had!
