Thank You Card Using Cricut Artistry and Cricut Artiste Cartridges

Hello friends. I hope you are all having time to craft.  It seems like life gets in the way sometimes of trying to find enough time to do it all.  LOL!  I thought it was supposed to be warmer today again; but I just checked and it says it is only 66 degrees.  We have very high winds; but we are supposed to get back in the 80's for most of the week.  What is your weather like where you are?  

I create cards for my CTMH customers each month; so I finally finished the ones for March. I thought I would try different ribbons to see if they made the card look different or still the same.  I think it changed the way they look; but you tell me what you think.  The colors may look different; but they are all the same colors.  Sometimes the pictures just don't all turn out the same. Do the ribbons make a difference in the card?  Which are your top three choices, based on the ribbon? Everything is the same except the ribbon.  

Card #1 - Celebrate It Ribbon (Michael's)

Card #2 - American Crafts Ribbon

Card #3 - Craftsmart Ribbon (Michael's)

Card #4 - Offray Ribbon (Joann's)

Card #5 - Craftsmart Ribbon (Michael's)

Card #6 - Offray Ribbon (Michael's)

Card #7 - Offray Ribbon (Michael's)

Hope to see you back in our new Challenge. Want to share a Word from the Lord found in 1 Samuel 2:9 and it says, "He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. "It is not by strength that one prevails." Have a blessed day!
