Ribbon & a sketch

Today over on the Flourishes Newsletter Stacy is showing us tricks and tips on how to use ribbon on your card.  I just folded over my satin ribbon and then stapled it, I was being lazy and didn't want to sew.  There are so many cool ways to use ribbon on your card other than tying a bow.  I do like the way the ribbon treatment on this card turned out, I will have to remember this more often.  
I used Kazan's sketch #24, from 2sketches4you (love love love it!!), her and Laura are sketch masters, they are my favorite sketches on the web, so go check them out!
I used the new Sweet Violets stamp set from Flourishes, I have never seen a reddish/orangish violet, but I wanted the flowers to match the paper, and unless your the flower police, I think it looks pretty good lol.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch, and then took a Copic marker and put the tip into each hole.  The hat pins were clear and a pearl color originally, but I wanted them to match also so I took the same Copic markers I used to color in the flower and leaves, and colored the tips of the hat pins.  That is the wonderful thing about Copic markers you can use them to customize all of your embellishments, besides coloring in images.  Did you see the news on the Flourishes Newsletter the other day?  Flourishes is now going to carry Copic markers, and they are packaged in color groupings.  Woot Woot...super awesome right!!
