Just Us Girls: Ribbons Scraps= Wicked Fun

Do you love ribbon?  Oh my, I can't have enough!  The spools always look pretty heaped in the $1 bin or lined up in rainbow cute as kittens. Once they are home in the craft room they misbehave almost as much as those kittens, too!  I've yet to discover an organizational method that keeps them from unrolling.  I have a blue bin, a white/cream bin, a red/black, a pink, a brown/chocolate, a yellow/orange, a green, and a miscellaneous....AND a drawer of little tube collections long retired from Close To My Heart.  Most of those have less than 5-6", and I'm afraid this card did not make a very serious dent in the collection!
But it was fun.  I didn't have a die or stamp for shoes so I drew them and cut them out from black card stock.  The ribbons were adhered to strips of white card stock.  I used some small sparkles for shoe buttons, and some of CTMH's new tulle and a bling button, and used foam tape on the shoes and front panel.
