Yay Me!

I know it sounds funny to have a post labeled Yay Me! but I've been missing my mojo for 2 weeks YAY ME! 
You're in my thoughts
A white card! Ahh who would have thought! The white theme is for the Pals Paper Arts PPA72 Challenge.  The sketch is for the OWH Sketch Challenge #46 and the ribbon is for the OWH Midweek Throwdown.  It's really hard to see but I used sparkle embossing powder on one of the layers.  Hopefully this close up will show that off better and the ribbon. =)
Close Up
The sentiment is popped up with some 3d foam and stamped with silver ink. It's from the SU! set Word Play. The Flowers are from the Verve set Great Friend. I won them a while back and still love them! The background is dry embossed with the SU! Square Lattice EF.

I thought I'd share how to do the ribbon. I have no video skills so I'm showing it off with photos.

First you will punch two small holes into your paper where you would want the center of the ribbon to be. If you don't use a small punch you will see your holes. Next, you will thread both ends of your ribbon through the holes to the back side. Cross over the ribbons on the back and thread them back through. Pull both ends and play with it to achieve the look you want.
