More grapes

...still cleaning off my desk. I declare to you that it is messier today than it was when I got the bright idea to clean it off on Friday!

Finished Card size: 4.25" x 5.5"
Stamps: Grapes(Biblical Impressions) Cherish (SU)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Gable Green, and I don't remember the name purple (SU)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukenko), Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger)
Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils
Other: Word Window Punch Ribbon
Background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.

Here's a tip,

you can always add color to ribbon with a marker. I used Fabrico marker, but any marker will work.

Remember I was using what was on my desk. This ribbon sort of coordinated with the green and the brown, but I wanted to use that purple background and the grapes.

I just added a purple stripe in a light area and changed the color scheme a little.

I love doing this with gingham ribbon. As a matter of fact, I buy the black and white and change it to black and whatever as the need arises.

Busy day today. I spent the day on the road picking up my daughter from college. I'm glad she's home for Christmas break. I think she ended her first semester on a positive note! I'm on my way to the Dentist office to work out some confusion there. Life is exhausting....
