This is for the Ways to Use It Challenge – National Wine Day. I thought of grapes in a vineyard used for making wine. I didn’t realize that I had so many grape/vine stamps until I went looking. I settled on this one for today. I stamped the background square in Crumb Cake, stamped off once. Then colored the image stamp with markers in two shades of purples and greens, huffed on it and stamped on top of the background square. Die cut the image and a mat with the SU stitched squares. Added a flourish vine die-cut. Stamped the image along the right side with VersaMark ink. I had a glue accident with the squares. It was a mess! So, I put an organdy bow over it. I liked the look, but the bow was way too big. So, I used my heat gun to cause the ribbon to shrink and curl up a bit, and that was much better. Sorry for the funky picture, I wasn’t watching the angle of the camera. It is straight IRL. No, I didn’t celebrate National Wine Day too much and get things crooked. Ha! Thanks for looking.

I think I have this one, but didn't come across it last night when I was looking. Unlike you, this may be the only thing I had that I could use. Love what you did with it here. Really nice card, and gorgeous ribbon bow.
