Joyful Life for Freshly Made Sketches #513

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

I love the whimsy of the Joyful Life stamp set and the frill on the Mini Ruffled Real Red Ribbon -  it looks just like a ruffled tie on an apron to me -  so I decided to let them both be the star on this clean and simple card.
