Sorry I was so quiet this weekend. I did make a lot of progress, but not on anything I can share just yet. ;o) So the challenge this week over on the Cards Blog is to use buttons, at least 5, the more the merrier. Now I snuck in there just at 5. I'm telling you, I tried to fit more in there, but it just kept throwing it off balance. So I left well enough alone.
I created the wreath using a wide ribbon and using my ruching technique. I found a little variation however...instead of doing a running stitch straight down the middle of the ribbon, I did it in a zig zag from side to side. What do you think? I was really happy with how it turned out. I added some buttons and a bow to the wreath, and a sentiment in a vintage font.
Here's a close up of that wreath so you can see the detail in that ribbon. Dreamy I tell ya, just dreamy.
As always, thanks for looking!
