Since I do not sketch things out before I make a card, this card came out totally different than what I first had in mind. I'm always amazed when that happens :-)
I knew I wanted to use the "Hello, Lovely" stamp set, the Banner Punch with pieces of card stock and/or designer series paper and some scraps of previously dry embossed card stock. Those scraps in Brushed Silver and Blushing Bride became my color palette. I added Smoky Slate Chevron ribbon and then began to design my card front.
I really like how it came out. It didn't take much time at all. I machine-stitched down the center of the ribbon and then pulled to gather and tied each end in a knot. I adhered the ribbon with Sticky Strip. The buttons and banners were adhered with Small Glue Dots. The ampersand was popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals after I cut it out with Paper Snips and gave it a shimmer with Zig's Wink of Stella Brush Pen. (Photo does not do the shimmer justice!) The designer buttons were the last edition and adhered with Small Glue Dots.
