This is another card I'm not really happy with. I got the bright idea of adding ribbon to the sides. Then I decided to put the ribbon over blue paper, and have the paper border the ribbon. It looked okay, so I mounted it onto the card. Then I stenciled the embossing with VersaMagic Aegean Blue. Then there was too much white between the design and the ribbon, so I decided to color it with the blue ink, but I was out of Fantastix for shading, and used blending stumps instead. They didn't blend very well. I also was beginning to wish I had mounted the ribbon onto white CS before mounting it onto blue so it would be brighter.
Next, I put blue paper inside so the lattice would show up better. That looked okay.
Next I was trying to figure out what to add for decoration, so I added a bow. It was still missing something, so I added blue half pearls.
Anyway, this is what I ended up with. I should have stuck with white on white, or white with pale pink or something.
