Spice Cake Patchwork

Here's a quick and easy card using the Spice Cake DSP.  I think this is such a lovely pack of paper and the addition of Pool Party is such a perfect pop of color!

Spice Cake quilt

Here's what I used:

Stamps:  Sweetly Said
Ink: Soft Suede
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Pool Party, Spice Cake DSP
Punches: Postage Stamp
Big Shot: Stripes TIEF
Ribbon:  Soft Suede 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain

Are you thinking that sure does not look like a 1 1/4" wide ribbon?  Well , it a started out at 1 1/4" but it is now about 5/8".   I cut the ribbon down and to prevent the raw edge from fraying I singed the side of the ribbon.   I used a candle and just barely kissed the raw edges with the flame.  I totally recommend doing this over the kitchen sink just to be safe.  I was able to hide most of the area where i did more than "kiss" the ribbon with the flame.  It is a cool trick and makes the wide ribbon even more versatile.  

Have wonderful "rest of the" week and if you need to order any crafting supplies you know where to go (in case you don't know click here)!   Thanks to all of you who have placed orders with me, I appreciate it more than you know!
