I used Celebrating Chloe on my card today. I stamped, colored and fussy cut her out and popped her on top of my layout. I paired her with some fun paper from the Pebbles Sunny Side collection. My white ribbon is one of my favorites to work with - 1.5" Silky Crushed. It was a little wider than I wanted for this particular layout, so I folded it in half and stitched both sides to create my own "saddle stitched" ribbon. After tying off a bow, I added a ribbon flower (made out of 5/8" Orange/Yellow Grosgrain) and finished off with a button and some Orange Divine Twine.

Here's a detail shot:

I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #163 for my layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
