Autumnal ribbon card

Here's another clean and simple card for the Less is More 1000 challenge:

I'm very taken with the way these three colours look together. The ribbons are glued onto Very Vanilla textured card stock which you can't see very clearly, but which I think adds a lot to the design. The texture on this card stock is quite subtle - much more subtle than an embossing folder for example. You can see it better if I zoom in:

The little square is one of my favourite images from the Cute by the Inch hostess set. I love to colour my rubber stamps in different colours before stamping them. I remember the first time I saw this technique I nearly fell off my chair with excitement!

Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Cute by the Inch (hostess set)
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive markers
Card stock: Very Vanilla textured card stock
Other: 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK.
