I saw how to do ribbon flowers a while ago and than stored it in my head. I often learn all sorts of things and than keep them in my head and never do them! (Like those flowers by Dawn McVey that I made a bunch the first time she showed on her blog before christmas I think! But never put on a card!) I have several other ideas that I will have to work on in the next bit! So anyways I saw the Embellish challenge which was turquoise, pink and brown with ribbon. Colors that I like! I think a week went by before it dawned on me I should make a card with the ribbon flowers! Which also means that this card can go for the current challenge for Hero Arts flowers and St Patricks day! Here is the colors to work with:
And here is my card:
I think this card is quite romantic with the colors and the flowers and the buttons. The buttons are actually from my mom, one day I visited her at her work and saw this big tin of buttons, I got so excited! I took a bit and than later my mom gave me a whole bag! These were in the bag, so pleased as there are so many colors that I dind't have in it plus I like how they are different. Aren't the ribbon flowers cute? I also paper pierced around the whole card, I used to paper pierce all the time but than stopped, I am liking it again!
I also have this card to share that I made around Christmastime.
During the HA blog hop I saw a card by Tami Hartley that inspired me to clear emboss on pp, I than colored in the flowers with a marker and cleaned up the mess with a baby wipe, it just wipes off easy! Fun card to make! It fits with the current challenge so I may as well submit it!
Tommorow is friday! Looking forward as I am getting together with yet another friend to craft! I look forward to raiding her stash!
