Up in the air- Global design project

Have you got an embarrassing craft habit? I think I do....Ribbon hoarding. I needed 1 piece of white bakers twine, for this weeks global design projects project, and went to my ribbon scrap heap. (see photo below. IT REALLY IS A HEAP!!) 
NOPE- I didn't have any, but my shame over the AMOUNT of ribbon scraps I hoard, made me use some of them in todays project. lol. 

Todays FABULOUS challenge is "case the designer" and what an amazing designer we are CASE-ing today-Krista Frattin. SUCH a talented artist.  Heres the card we are CASE-ing (copy-and-selectivly-edit) today

Here is my entry-

Lift me up and thoughtful banners bundles

ribbon "scraps"-I'm a ribbon hoarder!!

I DO love ribbons though!

use up your scraps!!

Tip of the day-To Use up some of my ribbon, I taped a long piece of (retired) night of navy ribbon along the long side of the card, and then tied either bows (if I had enough of that sort of ribbon) or flat knots (if I didn't) along it. 

I hope YOU enjoyed todays project, and it makes you use up some of the ribbon YOU might hoard too!! 
Have a great day- with a little creativity thrown it!!
