Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style - Ric Rac

Hi everyone!   Welcome to this week's Ribbon Inspiration Stamp Simply Style. This week we are focusing on Ric Rac ribbon! I really like ric rac ribbons, but don't use them that often.  Not sure why because they add just that right amount of pizzazz!!

Here is a link to the entire Ric Rac/Zig Zag ribbon category.

My card uses a piece of the wide ric rac ribbon.  The image is from the totally fun new JustRite Stampers set, Just Keep Calm which has coordinating Spellbinders die sets (LOVE)!  I love the feel of the Lily Bee Designs, Head Over Heels paper -perfect whimsical designs for this sentiment.
OK, you HAVE to check out this stamp set!  Look at all the fun possibilities...

Each week we will have fabulous Blog Candy (this week's is pictured below) made up of the ribbons that we feature.  This week, the winner will receive 1/2 yard of EVERY ric rac ribbon Sharon carries in the store.  The winner will be drawn from comments on one of today’s participating blogs, one comment per blog, please.  The winner will be selected at 6 p.m. EST on Tuesday, February 7th and posted on Sharon's blog on Wednesday. 
You must check back to claim your prize if you are the lucky winner!
 
 Here is a list of today's participants:

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!  I'll leave you with a close up picture.
