Feeling blue...

Font: Century Gothic, Marketing Script
Other: unknown ribbon; Aurora Crystal e.p. (Cosmic Shimmer)
This card was inspired by a post from The CLASSroom by Laura Bassen.  She demonstrates how to make a tartan pattern using solid stripes. 
I had a go, but wasn't that impressed with my stamping prowess,  then remembered this luscious ribbon that I have been hoarding  hadn't yet found a good use for.  I bought it at a show last year & have looked at it, with occasional stroking & sighing, at frequent intervals, then promptly put it back on the shelf.  But a new year has dawned & I am determined to be less parsimonious with my supplies!

Having printed out the sentiment, it lacked a little something.  If in doubt, add glitter.  A spread a little cosmic shimmer powder around my craft room, & fortunately some landed more or less in the right place.  However it is a tad camera-shy, so you'll just have to take my word for it!
