Fun Ribbon for an Any Hero Card

Hi, everyone.

I've had the ribbon on the card below for about a year.

Couldn't resist it when I found it at a flea market when shopping with a friend. But, since the colors just didn't quite go with any of my patriotic paper, I hadn't used it until now.

So, I decided to pair it with some neutral core paper and brads for this week's Midweek Throwdown challenge to make an Any Hero card. Even so, I'm still a little ambivalent about the paper being too formal for this more whimsical ribbon.Hmmm...

Parting Thoughts

Had a fun time at a Stampin' Up! one-sheet wonder class last night. Still have a few cards to finish!

Looking forward to hubby getting home tonight!!! He and our little doggie have been gone for almost 2 weeks.

Enjoy the weekend!  As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

Nice card, I love the earthy tones along with the patriotic colors of the ribbon.
Thanks for your thoughtful comments you left on my blog. I don't have time to do a tutorial, but I learned to make the origami shirt & tie here:

Wonderful hero card, the sentiment is perfect for the flag ribbon. Great choice!
