First I had a different size card base started but didn't like the way the pieces were going to fit on it so I switched to a square base with a piece of red card stock. Well I had a different piece going across, probably the back of one of these and it was red with little hearts on it and it clashed with the red card stock so I went looking for a different red and spent way too much time doing that before I decided to switch to a black card stock base. Then I didn't like the print with the red background. I put the ribbon down flat and was ready to let it go that way but then I thought it would be more fun to fold/pleat the ribbon across so that took a little more time, I'm not very nimble or fast with that technique but it looks really good to me so I took the time for that. Lots of glitches taking lots of unanticipated time not that I had any pressing appointments...
