Patience is a Virtue....

....but never when shopping!!  Don't you just love that great sentiment?

I made this card for the limited supplies challenge on SCS to use ribbon and trim (as in border punches).  I used trio-colored ribbon to bisect the four squares and my EK Success border punch on the Blush Blossom cs.



I black embossed the images and then colored them with markers with blush, pink, and rose. I used a Copic marker to color the top flower embellishment because it was originally white.

The base cardstock is dry embossed with small retro squares which is a part of a card and envelope set my friend JoJo sent to me---thanks, gf! The card measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.


Stamps: Rubbernecker Fashion Icon Set #455
Cardstock: Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, White
Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: black embossing powder, versamark, ribbon, black brads, pink felt flower, white flower, Copic marker, SU markers, border punch, dimensionals, pop-up dots, daubers

I am SO not patient when shopping - if I can't find what I want quickly I give up and go home. So for me, patience when shopping would be a virtue. I love the blush tones you've added on these. Took me a few minutes to spot the ribbon!!
