Paper Ribbons
The challenge at Cards in Envy this week was to use paper strips instead of ribbon!  I have admired the darling paper bows seen on other blogs, and  searched my Artiste Cricut cartridge for just such a thing.  It did take three tries to get the size I wanted, but I'm sayin' ...this is the easiest way to get that perfect bow :-)

The Deconstructed Sketch #94 is the ideal design for using my paper ribbon and bow.  What a great sketch!  I have two more cards lined up to make using this. It's simple and clean here with the new Close To My Heart Tommy papers.  The next card I'm trying with it uses floral paper and is sweet. This will be a go-to sketch for me.

Paper:  TOMMY (Close To My Heart), Outdoor Denim, Honey, White Daisy card stock
Stamps:  4 My Friend (CTMH)
Ink: Outdoor Denim
Tool: Artist cartridge (CTMH) , Cricut
