The letters were metallic chipboard stickers that I colored orange with alcohol ink (the colors of Landon's wedding were navy and orange). I backed these letters with vintage paper circles that were stamped with Recollection doily stamps. I adhered these circles onto Tim Holtz's Picture Wheel die cuts (out of patterned paper) with foam squares. Then I used Tim's Mini Tickets die cuts to decorate around the picture wheels. I used different blue pattern paper to die cut the larger tickets. These large tickets were dry embossed with Tim's Admit One Texture Fades folder (some were sanded and inked to bring out the details). The small ticket die cuts were stamped or embossed with Tim's Admit One stamp. The center ribbon bearing the letter "K" was a little different. I used Tim's Butterfly Movers and Shapers die to cut butterflies out of gold embossed orange paper (really pretty). I used an assortment of paper and real ribbons to finish the off the ribbon part of the blue ribbons.
Here are some close up pictures of all five ribbons:
Here is a picture of Mr and Mrs Cory Anders as they headed into the barn for their first dance as husband and wife. You can see the "Anders Country Fair" sign above the door on the barn.
Here are the blue ribbon cakes:

I am going to enter this into the Word Play challenge over at Country View Crafts Challenge site. It was so much fun to be a part of this amazing day for my niece. I'll be blogging some of the other decorations we made for the reception soon. Love my family!!
