SC224/Sharon's Stamp Simply #83 -- Thread it Through!

Happy Friday everyone!  It's been a great day..... the weather was beautiful, we went out to dinner, and I even got to stamp.
Don't you just love when you can combine two challenges into one card?  Here my take on this week's SCS sketch (SC224), which I combined with today's Stamp Simply challenge #83 to Thread it Through.  What fun!  
Image and sentiment are from a set called Perspective Bird (SG49) available from Shirley's 2 Girls.  It's the perfect size for this week's SCS sketch.  
Sharon's Stamp Simply #83 challenge is to thread something this week.  I used my retired SU! double circle punch to punch 2 holes at the top of my image.  Then I threaded my ribbon through the holes twice -- once front to back, then again back to front -- to form a faux knot.  Easy peasy! 
Thanks so much for stopping by..... have a great weekend and I hope the weather is wonderful in your neck of the woods!
Supplies:  Stamps - Perspective Bird (SG49) by Shirley's 2 Girls; Paper - SU! elegant eggplant, barely banana, Bazzill swiss dots DP, PTI white; Ink - Versafine onyx black; Accessories - clear EP, alcohol markers for coloring, foam tape, bling - A.Muse creative candy, ribbon from Mikes and SU! double circle punch.
