Embellish Magazine Challenge w/ Ribbon



Finally a challenge that involves ribbon. I have a ton of it, but I very rarely use it so this challenge was a definitely perfect opportunity to use some. A while back, Kristina Werner posted a ribbon flower card in a MACM video. I am sooo in love with that technique so I used it on this card. I used Stampin Up's pink taffeta ribbon since it's fairly thin and would fit into the small holes easier. This card is fairly plain and I actually tried adding a sentiment to it but it looked all kinds of wrong.

Wow! Another fun flower. I'd love to know the details on the process. The simplicity is great--the flowers don't need anything else.
