Tied up with Ribbon - Banana Split Sunday

Good Morning! The weather is beautiful here and we've been spending as much time outside as we can. I hope it's been nice for you as well!

It's Banana Split Sunday and the challenge for today is "Tied up with Ribbon". I LOVE ribbon. I use them alot, sometimes just a little piece, sometimes many pieces. You can make them the focal point of your project or just a little supporting embellishment. They just play so nicely with other supplies :)

Here are my cards, I had to make two because I love ribbon so much :)

Stamps: Tickled Pink (flamingo) and Hello Beautiful (sentiment) - 2RedBananas
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, chalk ink - rouge
Paper: Bazzill, dp scraps
Other: May Arts ribbons - Textured two-toned Fuchsia/pink, Sheer dots pink/white, Sheer Twinkle - pink, Dew drops - orchid, Shimmerz - bubblegum, prima flowers, pearls, EKSuccess flourish punch, Quickutz tag tie, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits.

For this card, I made the background with ribbon. There isn't any dp on this card. I had some fun ribbons that I had recycled from other things, but only had a short length of them. This was a perfect way to use some of these :)

Stamps: Tweet-ies - CC Designs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, SU Bliss blue (sponging)
Paper: regular white c/s
Other: May Arts ribbon - Grosgrain ric-rac - yellow, Textured two-toned fuchsia/pink, Mesh ribbon - aqua, Nesties, pop dots, Inkssentials white pen, Quickutz tag die, Copics

Be sure to check out the rest of the design teams take on this challenge. 2RedBananas blog.

Have a great day!

These cards are both so cute! I did a sample on my blog where the background is all ribbon, too. I guess great minds think alike!
