Braided Sympathy

Hello, friends. :-)

Raise your hand if you own a big collection of patterned papers, and yet, you rarely use them.  {I'm raising my hand}  I'm making an effort to use more of these pretty papers, which I just HAD to have, naturally. ;-) 

These papers from Stampin' Up! weren't from the same collection, but I think they make good mates for each other.

The braided jute ribbon is making its debut here. It was a Christmas gift - one of my favorites! On top of it, I added some loops of twine, and then a paper gardenia flower. Have you heard of That's where the flower came from. They're located far away from me, but shipping was pretty quick and VERY cheap. Their flowers are a great deal, if you're on a crafty budget.

Thanks a bunch for your visit today!

Oh, this is so pretty! I love these soft colors together. Very nice blue, and the braided trim is fabulous! Of course, you know how I feel about my patterned paper. Can't live without it!
