Default Pink Pirouette Ribbon Match?

Has anyone found a match to this color?

Thanks

Debbie

I was wondering this too?
There is the stripe and the 1.25" plain...though I have used the 1/4" Pretty in Pink with it too and you really can't tell.

I have a really pretty sattiny/taffeta-ish Martha Stewart ribbon that is probably 1/2 inch and matches VERY closely. I can't tell the difference.

Maybe you can find it, I got mine at Michaels.

You said you're using a stripe...SU has a pink pirouette and white stripe in 5/8"

I took several lengths of white organdy, ran them over the PP ink pad, and let dry overnight. I, of course, wear my rubber gloves when doing this. The ribbon, I think is beautiful. I have not tried this with grosgrain. I have seen threads here about putting lengths of grosgrain in a sealed container with drops of reinker to get the color needed. For my project, the organdy ribbon is what worked.

I prefer 3/5" over 5/8" and am not fond ot the new stripe pattern...Just a personal choice...I wish they would come back with more of the double stitched 3/8" grosgrain...

I agree about the stripe...I love stripes, but a lot of times it just doesn't fit the tone of the card!

Papertrey Inks sweet blush ribbon matches perfectly. I have made many a card with this ribbon and it has always looked really nice. They have twill, satin, polka dot satin, saddle stitch.

That is really good to know. I may have to get some ribbon from PTI. I couldn't justify buying SU's in-color ribbon for $10 a roll and it is not very versatile because of the casual stripes.

Thanks for the tip.

I found a Martha Stewart twill ribbon at Michael's that matched perfectly.

Thank you for all the great suggestions. I don't usually use the wider ribbon but as Melissa said SU cost for the in color ribbons is pretty steep. I also like the idea of a couple other choices for styles.
