Week 6: Do You Stack Up - Ribbon

Hi there, today's card is for this weeks challenge at the Do You Stack Up Challenge Blog

The challenge this week is:

The sponsors today are: Kristen Powers Ink and Bugaboo.


I chose to use an image from Bugaboo which just makes me laugh!  It's called One Person to Annoy and you can get it here.

I thought I'd find a spotty paper to match her dress.  Our challenge was to use ribbon.  I decided to make a ribbon flower.  First I sewed a running stitch down the middle of the burgandy ribbon and pulled it to make the little flower.  Then I ran a running stitch down one edge of the grey ribbon and pulled at that to make the main layered flower.  I added the burgandy to the top and secured them to the card with a vintage looking brad from Stampin Up.  I love the pretty delicate nature of the flower teamed with no-nonsense Stella.

This is the inside of the card!

And another close up of the flower.
I can't wait to see what fun ways you come up with to use ribbon in your projects.  Link them up at DYSU!
