Creativity for a Cause
Stampin' Up! is a global sponsor for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. As the assistant lead for Stampin' Up! at the Tampa, FL location, I provide the House with hand-stamped cards for families to use during their stay. Contact me to help me create cards for this worthwhile cause.

The inspiration for this card came from my dear friend, Linda Bauwin.  Check out her Blog by clicking here.  Quite honestly, Linda has been way more than a just a friend - she's my stamping mentor. She's encouraged me, given me fresh, new ideas and helped me make this the BEST Stampin' Up! year I've ever had. HUGE THANKS, Linda! 

The ruffled ribbon plays a key role in this card. Here I used a piece as the stem. Check out the leaves!  Those are actually pieces from another flower image in this same stamp set.  The coordinating punch insures no tedious cutting.  Buy the stamp set and the punch in a bundle and save 15%!
