Circle Circus in Pumpkin Pie

I love to see people use stamp sets and colors in unexpected ways.  Here's one I tried that I found unexpected when I finished.

Stamp sets: Circle Circus(#115778), Tiny Tags(#118091).  Ink:  Pumpkin Pie(#105216).  Paper: Very Vanilla(#101650), Island Oasis (Summer Mini 2010 #117173).  Accessories:  Linen Thread(#104199), Jumbo Eyelets, Striped Grosgrain ribbon(#115616), Tag punch(#117190), 3/4 inch circle punch(#119873), Paper Piercing Tool(#116631).

Stamp top half of  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 very vanilla card base that has been folded and creased with a bone folder.  Trim a piece of the polka dot paper from the Island Oasis paper pack to 5 1/2 x 2.  Layer onto card front below stamped portion.  Wrap enough ribbon around the card to go through the jumbo eyelet as shown.  I glued this all in place with sticky strip before trying to poke the points of the eyelet through the card.  Stamp a piece of scrap very vanilla with the same circle image and punch out with the 3/4 inch circle punch.  Apply adhesive and glue in position so it will show through the jumbo eyelet.  Press the prongs through the card, but not through the back of the ribbon.  Press the prongs down and then add a little adhesive under the ribbon to keep it in place over the prongs on the inside of the card.  Stamp the sentiment and flourish from Tiny Tags stamp set and punch out with tag punch.  Use paper piercing tool to add hole on the tag.  Run a piece of linen thread through the tags and tie them around the ribbon as shown.  Use snail adhesive to position the tags in place.
