Great Impressions Stamps + Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop

Good morning! Great Impressions and Ribbon Carousel teamed up for a fantastic blog hop that will run from 6am today until Friday at 11:59pm. I hope you enjoy the hop and fantastic cards we have to share today!

I chose the stamp Peace & Joy for my card, pairing it with some gorgeous brown ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel. 


I created the background by cutting 1/4 & 1/2 inch strips of green cardstock, then adhering those strips 1/4 inch apart on my kraft card base. The sentiment is stamped with Papertrey Ink's Pure Poppy and Stampin' Up's Gumball Green.

Up next is Jak Heath
