The perfect girly combination…..

Hmmm - what could be described as the perfect 'girly' combination? Well I think flowers, ribbon and lovely pastel colours would tick the box for most of the girls that I know!

So that was the inspiration for this card - something you would give to someone who had done something special for you, but made in a way that would suit lots of tastes. I hope I hit the mark!

The lovely stamp is from Stamp Addicts and, when I stamped and coloured it I just knew I wanted to frame it with lots of lovely ribbon, and so the rosette came to be.

It's a little bit time consuming, but really easy to make. I simply cut out some circles from thick card and the applied little strips of super sticky tape all  around the edges. It's then simply a case of pressing down the ribbon in a pleat fashion - or whatever suits, and then layering everything up with thick sticky pads.

Anyway, I hope you like it :-)

Finally, here are the challenges I would like to enter today….

  5. The combo of pretty floral image and ruffled ribbon is very pretty and how nice to make a thank you keepsake rather than a card :-)
