Of course there had to be some 3 Girl JAM and TAWS yumminess in there so I used Sunflower, Goblin Green, and Red from Red, White, and Blue pack from 3 Girl JAM. TAWS' Background Basics was perfect for this fun card. You can click on the name of each color/ stamp set to see all about getting some for yourself. Unfortunately, the red is not currently available. I cut the ribbon in half (along the width of the ribbon). Now you need to be very careful here as the potential for the ribbon to unravel is great. If you would like your project to have longevity, you probably want to avoid this. I am sending this card to a little boy, so I would imagine that the card won't last long.
