Sprigs of lavender

The challenge at The Ribbon Reel is to use newsprint and ribbons.


I love using text on my cards!  I found this at Tiny White Daisies for my inspiration:

....

So here is my card:

Ribbon Reel #23

supplies: cream parchment and  periwinkle cardstock, dp from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Portobello Road pad,  Unity Stamp "Sing a New Song", Memento blue and green markers , PTI Friendship Jar sentiment and Tiny Tags die, VersaFine onyx black ink, Nesties Labels Eight, unknown ribbon, Hero Arts ecru lace, button from Elise

I stamped the sprigs using some Memento markers, 2 shades of blue and green.   Sometimes a simple little bouquet like this is the most charming!
