Smile ribbon card - May Arts DT submission part 1

Hello lovely people - today's post is actually a Design Team submission for May Arts ribbon! When I saw these guys were looking for new designers I was thrilled. I know I use a hell of a lot of twine and embroidery thread on my projects, and the reason for this is because it's cheap and plentiful! I LOVE ribbon (particularly lace ribbon), but quite often I don't use it because it's far too pretty and I just want to hoard it away... what a refreshing change it's made to actually make myself use some of my lovely ribbon! And I must say, I really enjoyed making these projects.
To start with, I die-cut a panel from white watercolour cardstock, then scored, folded and trimmed to make my card blank. I backed the die-cut aperture with clear acetate and attached some Crate Paper The Pier patterned paper to the inside of the card, to show through. The pieces of May Arts Chevron Stripes ribbon were trimmed into pennant shapes and attached to punched hearts, then attached down the edge of a second die-cut panel. For an extra touch, I coloured some white pearls using my Crafter's Companion Spectrum Noir pens to match each shade of ribbon. I'm loving the bright, clean and simple look at the moment, it's what I'm all about! More to come tomorrow :)
