For our challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash, that is what we want you to do...dig out your old ribbon...the older the better! That is one of the things I love about SOS...it makes me use up that stuff that is just sitting there collecting dust, but really IS very useable and even lovely (well, sometimes!). The old ribbon I found is a spool of kind of an odd color of grossgrain ribbon. Almost an ugly color. One of those muted, grayish, "subtle" colors I used to think were very "modern", "sophisticated", "trendy"...so I would buy clothing in those colors. But I looked like death warmed-over in them! "Sophisticated" death warmed-over! LOL
The spool of ribbon was purchased at Old Time Pottery near Gulf Shores a couple years ago while vacationing there. It was in the Clearance department and looked like it had been there for years already. $.88 for 5 yards. I bought 3 spools, 3 different ugly colors. This is the first time I've used this one!
The ribbon color is more accurate in the picture below. The light blue die-cut with the leaves printed on it going up the left side of the card is another "stash" item that I've had for a few years now. It is from a whole set of 12" border die-cuts by K&Co. I really thought I'd use them more (that's why I bought 4 pkgs!) but I just don't think of them! They'd be great for scrapbooking...which I never have (MAKE) time for any more!
