OK this challenge was super hard for me. I was not feeling it AT ALL...but I was determined not to let it stop me. LOL. Over at Moxie Fab World there is a challenge to incorporate ruffles into you card. Much easier said than done for me.
As I was hand sewing some ribbon to create a "ruffle", I noticed that it naturally curled up when I was done and layed it down. And as I looked at it, I got an idea....hmmmm, I wonder how that would look as a flower. So I got out my Big Shot and cut out some leaves, and started to layout my card. I am actually really happy with how it turned out. I decided it needed some little buds as well, so using a smaller width ribbon I created a few.
Here's a close-up of those yummy little flowers.
If anyone is interested in how to make the flowers out of ruffled ribbon, just leave me a comment and I'll create a little tutorial.
ETA: The tutorial for creating these yummy flowers is now available, you can find it here.
As always thanks for looking! And on a side note, please say a little prayer for Deanna, Somer Thompson's mother. She was a friend of my niece's, they all used to walk home together. And it all took place in my childhood neighborhood, about 5 streets down from my mom, where my boys play almost everyday. So if you could, say a little prayer for her so that she may have the strength to make it through this devastating loss.
