Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #245 - Fabulous Florets

I have been looking at this sketch from Stampin 411 since Saturday and freaking out a bit to be honest.  I know if I'm freaking out why participate?  Well, one, I have been having a ton of fun working with all the different challenges and two, I'm not gonna let a little picture intimidate me...*smile*!

It looks so challenging I didn't think I would be able to come 
up with anything.  I started looking through all the current 
DSP and things started to take shape.  I got to the ribbon and 
stopped dead in my tracks...all the ribbon I own and I had 
nothing that would work on this card.  Panic set in for a 
moment and then it dawned on me I could dye my ribbon!  
That's right, I took a length of Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta 
Ribbon and ran my Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write Marker 
over it and let it dry.  Ta-dah!  Ribbon for my card.

Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write Marker
