Happy Birthday and colored ribbon...

As I was blurfing the other day I came across a post from PaperTreyInk about coloring ribbon with Copic markers. Well, this fascinated me and I had to watch.  Talk about a step up from just changing the overall ribbon color!



Isn't this just cool!  After I choose the colors for my card I found coordinating marker colors and, using my clear ruler and white grosgrain ribbon, I added the stripes. I white embossed the leaf image.


I used stamp sets Happily Grateful and Age Is A Number.  I punched a 1" circle from DCWV cardstock and sanded the edge to show the white, then punched the dragonfly.  I used my white gel pen (I don't have the link at the moment) and the Stardust Clear gel pen to add some dots and lines then adhered a crystal. 
I love how this card turned out!  I did have some problems keeping my ruler from slipping a bit but with practice...

Great card. I made one too (gotta love Nichole Heady lol). My first ribbon didn't work out so well. Your darling little 'bug' is perfect with that addition of bling.

Wonderful job! I like the colors you used for your ribbon coloring. Isn't it fun how something so simple can turn out so awesome? TFS!
