Ribbon Flowers

Good Morning - Yipee it's Wednesday!

Last week on someone's blog, and I'm sorry I don't remember whose, there was a challenge to do something with ribbon. I knew right away that I wanted to do a flower similar to a card we did at Regionals in the fall. That card had a single flower and I thought I'd try for more.

I used the snowflake from Best Wishes and More on the backside of the cardstock as a guide for punching holes for the ribbon to go through. It reminded me of the sewing cards from Playschool back in my day.
The stems are from Playful Petals, which I stamped in Rose Red ink and coloured in with Mellow Moss (although it's hard to tell)
The greeting is from Oval All which is in the new Occasions Mini coming up April 1; and uses the Scallop Oval Punch.

Today is laundry day for the Europe bound daughter, excitement is rising!!!!
Hope you have a fantastic day - thanks for dropping by - JOAN
