The hero arts blog this week set a challenge to use up your trimming scraps. Well ribbon is something I love, but I can never throw even the tiniest bit away for fear it may be useful, and this card is testament to that. I would never have thought of it without the prompt, so thank you hero arts.

Ribbon from American Crafts
Kraft cardstock by bazzill
Pink cardstock by American Crafts
