My Ribbon Flower

Nina Dee, she''s one of the Sweeties at Cupcake Inspirations is hosting a new challenge.  She's decided she wants her challenge to be all about ribbon and her first challenge is "Ribbon Flowers".  Luckily for me she has a tutorial on how to make these fabulous twisted ribbon flowers.  I love these and was shocked at how easy they are to make.  So for all the details about the challenge and how to make the flowers hop on over to Designs by Nina Dee..
This worked out very well for me, I needed to make a card for the April My Favorite Things Guest Designer challenge which is "Shabby Chic".  This wasn't the card I originally had in mind but when I made those flowers they didn't go with my original idea so I let my imagination go for a couple minutes and switched gears.

don't forget the inside
 Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Flower Silhouettes"
ink - Memento "Rich Cocoa"; Ranger "Tea Dye", "Scattered Straw", "Antique Linen" and "Frayed Burlap"
paper - K & Co "Life's Journey"; the card base is from a set of blank cards I picked up in a craft store; green cs scraps for leaves; Georgia Pacific white cs for sentiment
miscellaneous - Kaisercraft Pearl flourishes; nesties Label 14; ribbon;
Creative Memories scalloped corner punch
