Spring has Sprung

How about another long card. These fit in the business envelope. I get kind of sick of always doing the same sized cards. I like something different once in awhile.
So for today's project you will need the following:
Seasonal Birds Stamp set (Retired)
Piece of designed paper this one is cut at 2 1/2 x 9"
Pixie Pink, Old Olive & Whisper White Card stock
Pixie Pink cut at 8 x 9"
Old Olive cut at 3 x 9"
Old Olive cut at 2 1/4 x 2 1/4"
Corner rounder Punch
Scalloped Circle Punch
Basic Black Ink
Pastels for coloring
Mauve Mist Ribbon (Retired)
Craft White Ink
Dot background stamp The sketch is one of Maria Bell's. It is an older one so not sure it is on her blog anymore but here is the link to her blog.
Fold the PP in half so it measures 4x9, stamp with the dots background stamp in White Craft Ink.
With the Old Olive piece 3x9, take the corner rounder, take off the guide and punch the edge of the card stock along the long end. This will give the scallops.
Lay your printed paper on this.
Cut little cuts in the Old Olive 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 piece for the ribbon to go through. Weave your ribbon through the cuts and tape down. Add this to the card.
With the WW scalloped Circle piece stamp image, color in and mount to the 2 1/4x 2 1/4 piece.
