Well, who could resist applying for a DT position like this??  Not me that's for sure.  So here are three projects that I particularly like which feature ribbons I have purchased from Crafty Ribbons in the past.
1.  This is a DT card for Totally Tilda and on here are three different ribbons from CR.  The oriental ribbon down the side, the black bow and the little pink butterfly!!
2.  This is a mother's day card I made following the tutorial for the ribbon rose on the Crafty Ribbons website - it's a bit on the bulky side but it was my first effort.
3.  This is a card I made for my DT project at Totally Tilda for the Ribbons and Roses challenge and features two different ribbons from CR:
So, if you are interested in becoming a member of the DT at the Crafty Ribbons challenge blog then off you go and do your post and good luck.
