Ribbons & Bows at Midnight


I made this card for a Caardvarks challenge to use ribbon in a unique way found here: http://caardvarks.blogspot.com/2009/10/take-bow-sponsored-by-may-arts.html

I wrapped the ribbon around my punched medallion and made a pretty bow on the top.

I used the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC22) found here for my layout: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/2009/10/midnight-madness-week-22-mmsc22.html.
