Ooooh I am very excited today...........Our NEW Challenge Blog (here) kicks off with it's first Challenge.
and I have been busy making my card. The trouble was I had so many ribbons to choose from, I struggled,
traditional or contemporary.............
in the end I went for this
Traditional with a contemporary twist...
(I have confessed to the DT girls that I cannot colour and do not own a rubber stamp!)
I used 3 ribbons, the first is the white opal with the red edge, this sparkles in the light - here.
The second is our very own Happy Christmas embossed velvet - here.
and finally the wonderful red poinsettia - here
Yes the poinsettia is made from nothing but ribbon, here is a side view.
All I have done is backed the ribbon onto card and cut out. Tutorial here.
There are some half poinsettias on the ribbon,
perfect for building up a full flower.
Do pop over to the NEW Challenge blog to see what all the fab DT girls have made with ribbon.
