JAI386 Just add R - Ribbon of Courage thank you

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just add 'R', so our projects need to include a colour, technique, Stamp set, or any other element beginning with the letter R. This is my card.

My R challenge element is the Ribbon of Courage stamp set & dies bundle. I made this card as a thank you to those who generously contributed to my Alzheimer's Australia fundraiser, in honour of my Mum, who's living with late stage Alzheimer's.


The Alzheimer's support ribbon in Australia is a teal colour, so I used mainly Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends, with a touch of pink pirouette to colour my ribbon - no blending required. I love the pretty doodle details on the ribbon image. It looks great simply stamped but is lots of fun to colour too.

I teamed the ribbon with a fun, hand painted effect striped paper from the Whole Lot of Lovely paper pack. The lovely scripty thank you sentiment (Flourishing Phrases) on a banner, and some of my favourite Year of Cheer silver washi finishes off the card. Clean, simple & fresh.

The Ribbon of Courage stamp & die bundle is such a fabulous one for all sorts of occasions. It has a useful collection of sentiments & the die set includes the sweetest flower & leaf combo. You can see it in more detail in my supply list below. Click to see larger images & order the supplies from my store, to make your own version.

Remember to head over to the Just Add Ink blog to see all the wonderful R's they've used for their projects and make your own R project too.

Thanks for visiting today & I hope you're inspired to make something yourself. Pop back soon for more ideas.

Inky wishes, Di

Lovely card Di. I got this set at OnStage in April but found I can't use it since Mum was diagnosed. I love the way you multi-tones the ribbon. Perfect as usual xx
