Rhi's Ribbon Flower Challenge


This is my first ever challenge, Rhi set the task to make a card with a flower 'Ribbon' on it, she gave detailed instructions on how to make the flower, the rest was up to me.

I cut the rattle from the NA Cricut range and then I cut the pattern part for the rattle several times to make it look like chipboard. I softened the edges of the rattle with blue chalk and created a purple shadow to help lift it from the card.

The sentiment again was cut using the NA cart, I cut 3 layers in the different colours; blue, cream & purple, did not quite come out how I wanted but I am still happy with it.

I then set about making the flower using bits & bobs from my ribbon box. Completed the card with a few buttons.

Don't forget if you fancy having a go look on Rhi's blog Rings Like a Bell.

Whew......my first challenge over; in fact I really enjoyed making it, and that is what crafting is all about.
