ABC Challenge - R is for Ribbon

Yup that's what we want this week!  There has to be some ribbon on your creation!  The ABC challenge is sponsored by Pollycraft this week.

I have made this cute chest of drawers (tutorial) and matching card.

The image is from Stamp Fairy and is colored with my copics.

Image and mat were cut out using my labels 8 nestabilities.  Aside from the little bow, my ribbon is in the form of ribbon roses on the drawer pulls and as accents on the card.

This is the first time that I have made ribbon roses, and I didn't do to shabby!  I used this tutorial here.  I really like their technique, but I wanted the flowers to be a bit smaller to match the project.  Instead of using the inch ribbon I used 3/8" ribbon.  It seemed to make it harder than it needed to be, but made the roses just the right size for me!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

The Stamping Boutique - handmade flowers
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Kaboodle Doodles - let's get girly

I hope you have a great rest of the week and are busy crafting with us at ABC!
