No stamping....

..on this card! It was a bit if a shock to the system as I seem to be addicted to stamping and find it hard not to incorporate it somewhere on my cards at th moment! Anyway I saw this idea for creating flowers by sewing organza ribbon onto cardstock in a magazine and thought I would give it a go.


I pricked out some holes onto white cardstock into the shape of a flower and then used organza ribbon to create the flower shape. I used green thread to create the stem and leaf and an amber coloured brad for the center of the fower. Background paper is papermania and was torn to give that shabby chic effect. The sentiment is a rub on from K & Co. I am going to give this to our friends fro thier wedding anniversary.

Well, a bit different for me but I am very pleased with the result and will definately be trying this idea again!
