Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style - Think Spring

Hi everyone!  Welcome to this week's Ribbon Inspiration Stamp Simply Style. This week we were to think spring!  When I think of Spring, I always think of pink, yellow and blue tones  -and of course flowers!!

My card uses some of the My Mind's Eye, Miss Caroline "Dolled Up" paper.  Can I just say it took me over an hour to settle on this pad?  You see, I ordered all the new MME pads and looked through each one during the entire American Idol Thursday night!  Man, they sure are pretty, but I digress...  
I thought the Prima flowers from the Avon Rose, Alla Prima packed complimented the papers nicely.  Do you see some embossing on the background piece?  Yep, I stamped the JustRite Shabby Music background stamp and embossed it with clear powder.  I used a couple ribbons on this one, the satin edged grosgrain, the wrinkled ribbon and the baker's twine.  The circle frame and sentiment are from JustRite Stampers, Family Garden.
 Each week we will have fabulous Blog Candy (this week's is pictured below) made up of the ribbons that we feature.  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, March 13th and posted on Sharon's Blog on Wednesday. 
You must check back to claim your prize if you are the lucky winner!
