TUESDAY THROWDOWN CHALLENGE #15

We have great Tuesday Throwdown today!! Ribbon with a twist, that is using ribbon in different ways. I decided to crochet a flower with ribbon. I got home early this morning from my trip to visit my daughter. On the flight home I made lots of flowers out of 1/8" ribbon and decided to use this brown two layer one. I used the sketch from MOJO Monday. I also made a ruched strip from the seam binding I dyed to match the leaves. The lt brown is embossed with a wood grain folder. The brown lattice is punched with a MS punch and attached to the textured piece. The peach background are cut with a peony die cut and stitched around with brown. The crocheted flower was attached and a flower button center added from my button box. I cut out two leaves and scrunched them to give them some dimension. The sentiment is from SU and cut out with a scalloped oval nestie, a bow attached and all foam dotted up. A scalloped corner added and all attached to a peach SU card stock. The edges were distressed with chalk and stitched.

  2. WOOHOO! Vacation agreed with you creatively. The idea of crocheting the flower from tiny ribbon is cool and clever. I like the restful colors of this and the MS punch adds just the right design down the edges. Great card! Welcome home. : )

    Love and hugs, Martha
