Happy Harvest - a woven ribbon card

I'm posting this card...just because it makes me smile :)

This morning I watched a video tutorial on Britta Swiderski's blog.  She made a woven ribbon wedding card.  It looked like it would be a fun and easy technique to try.  So, I gave it a go this afternoon.  Guess what?  It was FUN!  I want to make another one.  Soon.  Here's a link to Britta's video.

I didn't make this card for any challenges.  Just for fun.

My embossed sentiment doesn't show up well in these photos.  I'm thinking, now, that I should have embossed it in gold instead of green.  That's okay.  It still makes me smile :)

P.S. This cute autumn-y ribbon makes me smile, too.

The recipe ~
stamp: Happy Harvest (Verve)
card stock: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie (Stampin' Up!)
ribbon: Sage/Gold/Red Ribbon FX (Hobby Lobby)
ink: Versamark (Tsukineko)
other: Emerald EP (Stampendous), gems (Affinity by The Paper Studio)
