Is velvet ribbon still 'in'??

I was at the gift show yesterday and am SOOOOOO tempted to order velvet ribbons! But they remind me of winter - and though they are great (PERFECT, I mean) for Valentine's cards, they don't seem like Spring-time embellishments (at least not to me). So, I am trying to decide if I want to go with an order of VELVET ribbon in all the colors or if I should stick with my original plan of the beautiful shimmery irridescent duo colors....or the beautiful stripes??

Also if you have a preference on width, what would you get? There is 1/4" or 3/8" or 1/2" and finally, 5/8" -- I tend to stick with 1/4" & 3/8" most (but not all) of the time.

What type and widths do YOU think is best? What is used most?

Have a great evening. It's really cold out (think 'threatening to snow cold', and 'wet' - I bet icy will be a better description in the morning though). What's the weather like where you're at? Hope you all stay dry and warm!

I just bought some of the velvet rick rack in pastel colors from All That Scraps. Look really springy to me and great for Easter cards!!

Hi Elaine!
That is a good question...I have no idea. I imagine that velvet in spring colors is fine though. One of these days, i'm going to put together a tutorial for Copic's. Thank you for your lovely comments.
