Today I'm sharing a card for another one of Unity's WCMD Challenges, USCWCMD09, which is to use an excessive amount of ribbon or use ribbon in a creative way. I chose the latter. This card uses two of Unity's KOTMs. I started by creating a background using the regal damask image and highlighted one of the French sentiments (which translates to I Like You) inside a gorgeous lace frame. I ruffled the ribbon on a piece of Scor-Tape and used staples to flatten and accent it.

So what are your plans for the weekend? It's the Thanksgiving long weekend here in Canada! We're hoping to visit the Zoo and have a big meal with my parents. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, too!
