A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA Ribbon Challenge

A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA's Challenge No. 2 is to be inspired by ribbon. I'm cutting the deadline pretty close tonight, but my mojo has been needing a jump-start today! I finally settled on this green "puffy" ribbon as my Mountain Man calls it! The soft, puffy rectangles reminded me of peas AND I just happened to make it over to the A Muse store this Saturday (despite a car show that closed off the street) and picked up a few little things including the Baby Wishes set (which includes the pea and sentiment) that was on clearance. Whew, if you made it through that last sentence, you deserve a cookie!

Stamps: A Muse Baby Wishes set
Paper: SU Always Artichoke, Cosmo Cricket DP (Honey Pie: Ella) - used front & back
Ink: Black Staz-On, E00 Copic (for face), Pretty in Pink (for cheeks), Always Artichoke
Accessories: Ribbon (I had it cut at Ben Franklin - should have written down the name!), A Muse Creative Candy, Making Memories Sticky Squares (for dimension)

Card details: I had a difficult time (to say the least) getting a decent photograph of this card. It's possible I spent more time photographing it than actually making it! I gave the pea some dimension with foam tape squares (just on the left side) to give it that snap-pea look. I also made a tendril by cutting a very thin piece of cardstock and wrapping it around my paper-piercing tool.

Enough chit-chat. Thanks for visiting and I hope you can join in the next challenge!

What an adorable card and I can't wait to see more from this stamp set! I love the details you added like the curly q on the pea and the bling.
