It's a VELVET Stamp Simply Ribbon Inspiration Saturday!

Today we are all about velvet ribbons! I've a darling Halloween card with 3/8" black velvet ribbon (found HERE) embellishing my stamped image. It is simply looped three times and tied with Halloween twine (found HERE)!
Here is a better look at the velvet ribbon embellishment. I added an adhesive pearl atop the twine as well.
A peek of the card inside. This cards sports designer paper Mischievous, from My Minds Eye (found HERE)! This is my first time using papers from My Minds Eye and I love the quality. The 6x6 paper pad contains 24 sheets, all are double sided! The cute moon on the card from paper comes printed that way!
My image is from JustRite's Happy Trick or Treat Set (found HERE). It is copic colored and cut using Spellbinders Label Ten Dies (found HERE). The sentiments, card inside and out are found in JustRite's Halloween Mini Sentiments Set (found HERE). There you have it!
